Have you ever deleted multiple files in Explorer at once? Thunderbird works the same way. Select the first message you want to delete. Then press and hold Shift and select the last message to be deleted. This selects all messages in between the first and the last one. By holding down Ctrl and click on an individual messages you can select or de-select it. Then press Del to delete all selected messages.

Thanks but just sort of answers the question. I want to select random messages, not all in a row, to delete. Know how to do what you responded with.

Also, why no delete function at top of screen with other tools? Very cumbersome to right click mouse and select "delete" from a menu!

Still need help, because I am finding this email program to be more cumbersome than AOL!!

Hold Ctrl and click on the emails that you want delete, then press Del to delete the email selected, or click in delete button at top of the email

That just allows one email at a time-too cumbersome. I want to select multiple emails that are not right in a row and then be able to delete all at once. Not one at a time.

Thanks for responding

Can you group the emails together by sorting based on "subject" "from" or "unread"?
