Re: deleting e-mails from Gmail.

In the case of my folder I wanted to delete, it not only deleted the e-mails, but the folder as well, which was fine, but certain other folders, I would just like to delete their e-mails. Thank you for the tips. Now I just have to remember how to get back to standard view. I have a difficult time navigating in the HTML view.

Hi Again Sherri,
I found steps to remove messages for Standard view if you're using it and not the Basic HTML view.
From: Philip Hall
I would appreciate if someone would try out the steps and let me know if I missed anything.
I created this using Jaws 18.
1. Open your Gmail account and make sure you are in standard view.
2. press h until you get to labels
4. Press enter twice.
Press enter one more time.
5. Now, arrow down until jaws says
6. Press enter to take you to the list of trash emails.
7. Press the letter t to jump to the table of trash messages.
8. Press up arrow to the empty trash button, or press
9. Press enter.
10. Press b to bring focus to the ok button or down arrow to the button.
Using jaws, for some reason, pressing enter or space on the ok button doesn't activate it.
11. If using jaws, turn off quick navigation keys by pressing
Press enter to activate the ok button.
You can now turn on quick navigation keys again by pressing
All your messages will be deleted.

I have a lot of trouble navigating the Google mail site with Jaws. I am currently using Jaws 17, but I also have Jaws 2019 on my computer. I am running Windows 7.
I am almost out of storage space and have lots of Gmail to get rid of. Deleting it from Outlook doesn’t seem to affect the Gmail client itself. How do I go about selecting and deleting large quantities of Gmail? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
