How to Delete Every Email at Once in Gmail

To delete all emails at once in Gmail, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open Gmail and go to your inbox.
  2. In the search bar, type “label:inbox” (without quotes) and press Enter. This will show you all the emails in your inbox.
  3. Click the checkbox at the top left corner of the screen to select all the emails on the page.
  4. If you have more than 50 emails, a message will appear asking if you want to select all emails that match your search. Click the link that says “Select all conversations that match this search.”
  5. Click the “Trash” icon to move all the selected emails to the Trash folder.
  6. Go to your Trash folder and click the “Empty Trash now” button to permanently delete all the emails.

Note: This action cannot be undone, so make sure you want to delete all your emails before proceeding. Also, this method only deletes emails from the inbox and not from other folders like Sent or Drafts. You will need to repeat the process for those folders separately.
