To delete an email there is likely an option for deleting unwanted mails from within the mail program itself. For example in Outlook, you highlight the mail you want to delete and then click the "X" on the toolbar to delete.

Delte all emails at once Is delete all


It depends on your mail program.

Outlook online (using your bowser) only allows you to select messages per page, so you can only delete a maximum of one page at a time.

Thunderbird (running on your pc) The whole inbox is available to be deleted in one go.
Using the command Control+a (select ALL), you can then delete all the mail in the inbox in one go, by hitting the delete key.

Most offline mail prrograms act like Thunderbird.
But the mail program needs to update the mail server on line, so this might take some time, to synchronise the offline inbox with the online inbox.

I cannot delete any of my old emails that I have received


Disposing of old messages will make it easier to locate the e-mail you do want.
It also frees up space on your hard disk.
These instructions should work for most e-mail programs.
Select the e-mail message by clicking on it.
Press the Delete key or Delete on the toolbar, or drag the message to the Trash or Deleted Items folder.

Won't read keyboard


usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

Clean old files out of a computer


go to "my computer" and click on the drive (usually "C") and click on explore. the drive storage files will open so that you can choose which ones you want to delete. You can delete one file at a time or hold down the CNTRL Key and keep selecting files but don't try to do too many at once, maybe 10 or 15 at a time, just hit the delete key and they will be gone, realize that once they are gone they are actually in the recycle bin and can be recovered. You will not get your space back until you actually go into the recycle bin and delete the files that are there but once you do this,its final and your files are gone forever (well not exactly, but it would be difficult to get them back).
if you have a drive besides the "C" drive that you want to deltet files on, you can go to the drive and choose "select all files" and then hit the delete key, these will go to into the recycle bin as well and you'll have to detlet them there too to actually recover all your space. Be advised that some files are so large that when you hit the delete key the file won't go to the recycle bin but a diaglog box will open asking you if you want to delete the file.

How to auto delete incoming mails that are sent before a specific time, say a week ago?


If using Outlook or Outlook Express, go to the inbox and then click on the column heading that says "Received." This will sort all your messages according to date. Then, use the scroll bars to go to the earliest message you want to delete and click on it. Next, use the scroll bars to find the latest message you want to delete. Press and hold the Shift key, and while continuing to press and hold the shift key, click on this last message. All the messages between these two dates should now be selected. Release the shift key. Finally, immediately press the Delete (sometimes simply labeled "Del") key. This should delete all your messages and put them in the Outlook "Deleted" folder.

I recievced a dell pc desktop dont know what model it is but its set up for a corp network. cant get pass password would like to wipe drive and install xp have disks. how do i go about this. i think its...


The model name, and model number is usually on the back of the computer tower, next to the Windows Product key, or up on the side of the computer tower case.

Sometimes you have to open a door on the Front Panel, and it is located inside. (Not on the door. On the computer. The Front Panel is the plastic front of your computer)

You have XP Installation disk/s?
You are aware that Microsoft's User's License states,
"Only one genuine copy of Windows per one computer"

(Microsoft makes a Master disk of an Operating System. The copies made from it are bought by the consumer. These are GENUINE copies)

If the Windows XP installation disk you have is a fresh disk, I suggest you go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options change the first boot option to CDROM.

Windows doesn't 'like' having the same operating system installed over it.

Making sure that your optical drive, (CD or DVD. Player or burner, doesn't matter), is the first boot device, will override the above.

How to get into BIOS Setup for a Dell? (It's actually BIOS Setup utility)

Dell uses different keys on the keyboard for their different models.

A) The Dimension models usually use either the DELete key, or the F2 key.

B) The Inspiron models use the F2 key

C) The Latitude models (Desktop computer) use the F2 key

D) The Optiplex models may use either the F2 key, or the DELete key.

E) The Precision models use the F2 key.

Computer off, right after you press the Power On button, start tapping, (In 2 second intervals), on the appropriate key for your Dell model.

Note that I stated two different keys for some of the above models.

The procedure to find out which is the correct one, is to simply try one that is listed, and if it doesn't work, try the other one.

HOWEVER, you try using the first key.
Doesn't work?
Then you need to start all over.
You need to reboot the computer. (Restart)

Press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys at the SAME TIME.
This will restart, (Reboot), the computer, where you can try the other key.

Once you are in the BIOS Setup utility, you need to look for Boot Options.
There are many types of BIOS setup utilities, and Dell didn't/doesn't use just one.

You may see Boot Options in the top header of the BIOS Setup utility.
You may not.
If it isn't listed at the top, scroll down to the listing similar to,
Advanced BIOS Options, and open it.

[In the BIOS Setup utility you can no longer use your mouse.
You will use the Up/Down Arrow keys to highlight the area you wish to open, and then press the Enter key]

For questions please post in a Comment.

DELL reformating


On boot press the key that will open your BIOS (usually flashes which key this option for a second or two on boot, or just press F1, F2, and the delete key on boot) and set the boot order to CD ROM drive first, then with the Windows CD/DVD in your CD's tray reboot and look for a prompt to press any key to boot to the CD and press a key. This prompt will only show for a few seconds, so you have to be quick. Once booting to the CD you should get to the format and partition screen where you can delete partitions, create new ones, and then format the one you want to reinstall your OS on and the rest should be easy.
