Bulk deletion of pictures

Bulk deletion of pictures

How do I delete many pictures in a folder.  I use them in Camera uploads then move them to a holding file for 60 days then delete.  I used to be able to bulk delete, but now must do it one at a time.

That should still work. It does for me. If it's not working for you, clear your browser's cache/browsing history and try again, or try another browser.

Is this on the Dropbox website? If so, you can bulk-delete files by selecting each file you wish to delete by checking the box to the left of the file, then clicking Delete from the menu at the top of the page.

 

If that's not what you're doing, how are you trying to delete the files?

Understood.  Previously I could click on the first file, hold the shift key down and select the last file and all in between would be selected.  I take many pictures and want to delete +250 pictures.  Do I now have to select each one?

Thanks for your help!
