Exclamation Unanswered: can somebody help me delete all my pictures saved to my computer?

I have about 100-150 or so pictures saved to my computer of my virtual webkinz or old avatars that I don't want saved to my computer anymore. It's really annoying when I save a picture and go to upload it, I have to search through hundreds of pictures until I find the one I previously saved and want.
I've been manually deleting them one by one for like a half hour now, and I've only deleted about 8 pictures. This computer is so slow it takes about 30 seconds to delete one picture, and I have about 150 pictures that I need to delete.
Does anybody know how to delete ALL the pictures saved to your computer at once? This would help out a bunch!
Thanks =)

Livi.


(2:5 I finally finished it all - thanks everybody =)

Livi,

First, be careful!

The easiest way would be to put them all in one folder and then just delete the folder. I'd suggest looking carefully at the photos to make sure you don't delete something you want.

Create a new folder (call it "delete me") and then move all the photos into that folder. Then just delete that folder.

If you don't know how to create folders or move files, let me know.

Good luck!

Thanks, that helped out.
It still takes like another 20 seconds to move a picture.. I think it is because I have somany saved.
I do have a couple pictures that i still want saved to my computer..so the folder idea is good. i'll try it out.
Thanks =)

HI, set up the file view for you can either just delete the whole folder they are in along w/ all of them.. or go in the folder & use the control button to hunt & pick which ones to delete and highlight then click delete and wait a long time for them all to be gone but in 1 move. Or use the shift key to hold the place of 1st file and then scroll down & all will be highlighted until end (you can also use page up & page down keys for this too), then hit delete.

this should work.. also the process will go alot faster if your PC resources aren't being used up by having to show you "thumbnail" little pictures of each picuture file.. set it up in View from top of web browser and set to file view, w/ out details i& that makes it even smaller.. then just do the stuff above.. sorry this was so fast.. but I have to volunteer for chess club & have to RUN out the door NOW>. good luck

I would suggest that you burn them to a CD first so if you change your mind you will still have a copy, the best way is to create subfolders and name them so that you know what they are. It is easier to find something that way. I also date mine with the month and year. Hope this helps

If you are on a PC, I believe there is a shortcut for deleting multiple files. You might want to try clicking on the file name of one you want to delete, then I think it is either:
shift+click
or
command+click
That will allow you to hightlght multiple files no matter what order they are in. You can the drag them all into the recycle bin at once or right click to delete them.

I am a mac user, but I used to work on a PC at work so sorry I cannot remember the exact command. But it is much faster.

You should try emptying your recycle bin. If it's too full, that can sometimes cause the problem you're having.
