How to Delete Gmail Emails in Bulk – 3 Easy Steps

Step 2. Click on Checkbox to Select All Emails at Once

When you get into the Gmail web version, the main thing begins, so you must tap on the checkbox, which you would find right about the primary email section.

For those who are wondering, is the primary email section? 

The Gmail app has three email sections: primary, social, and promotional. So Gmail automatically filters all the emails you receive on your Gmail ID in these three categories. The primary section is the section where all the professional emails are listed.

Now, what if you want to delete all the emails? So here is how you can do it. When you tap the checkbox, you select the top 50 emails. You will find a line below the delete button that says select all emails.

It does not just always say to select all emails; it shows you the exact number of emails. Suppose I have more than 8070 emails received, so when I tap the checkbox, Gmail also shows me an option to select all 8070 emails.

Step 3: Tap the Delete (Dustbin Button)

How to Recover Bulk Deleted Emails From Gmail

If you have deleted many emails from your Gmail app, don’t worry; there is still a chance you can recover them. Here are the steps you can take to find and restore bulk deleted emails from Gmail:

  1. Open your Gmail app.
  2. Once you are logged in, click on the “Trash” folder on the left-hand side of your screen. This folder contains all the deleted emails from your account.
  3. If you can’t find the deleted emails in the Trash folder, you can check the “All Mail” folder, which contains all the emails in your account, including those you have archived or deleted.
  4. Once you have found the emails you want to restore, select them by clicking the checkbox next to each email.
  5. Next, click the “Move To” button at the top of the page, and choose the folder where you want to move the selected emails.
  6. If you can’t find the folder you want, you can create a new folder by clicking on the “New Label” option.
  7. Once you have selected the folder, click on the “Move” button to restore the emails to that folder.

If you still can’t find the emails you want to restore, there is a chance that they have been permanently deleted from your account. In this case, you should contact the Gmail support team for assistance.

Honestly, this method is very underrated, and people don’t even try it, but if you want to delete all Gmail emails, it’s for you. If you are worried about critical emails, you should delete the unimportant email, or even you can add a label to them, or try to Mark all of them as read in Gmail.
