Windows 7: Windows Live Mail -Sent Items Folder Maintenance

Windows Live Mail -Sent Items Folder Maintenance

I have 150 plus items in my sent items folder and growing. In Outlook Express it was easy to select all of the items in the sent items folder and delete them. I can not find the same option in Windows Live Mail. It appears I can only delete one item at a time. Is this true? Only one item at a time can be deleted?

Just - when you are in Sent folder - press CTRL+A and all messages will be selected.
You can also use SHIFT+left mouse click or CTRL + left mouse click.

Worked Great!

Thanks for the tip! It did the job!

Is this documented somewhere and I missed it or was this hidden? I have looked all over the internet, the live mail help files and all the options in the Live Mail Software and came up empty. There should be an ICON in Live Mail to do this function.

I think at my advanced age I can remember control A though.

Thanks Again!

That's a normal Windows function.... been around since the first Windows.

Thanks again! I saved this for future reference. Been a Windows User since the days of win 98 and I never ever got into the keyboard shortcuts. Never felt a need. Now that I have them I guess I better bone up and use them.

Also thanks for welcoming me to the forum.
