The screen only lets me select up to 50 emails at a time and I have THOUSANDS of them I have to delete!
Let’s call this the AskAGeek fix as this is such an unknown feature/bug that no one knows about it.
Once you are in your Gmail inbox, click the SELECT ALL button on the top left corner of where the emails display. Once you SELECT ALL you’ll see a new link pop up just in the middle of the screen asking if you want to select ALL the emails in the inbox. Simply press that link and it’ll select everything. Then just click DELETE!
Of course this works for any folder you are in, not just the inbox.

Ok I have 6500 emails. Lets say I just want to delete 5000, instead of all of them. How do I do that without having to do it 50 at a time. Thanks in advance for your help.
After you select all of your messages, at the top in the center you will see a hyperlink "
All 50 conversations on this page are selected. Select all 1187 conversations to delete" – click that hyperlink and you can delete everything instead of just 50 at a time. I just tried it and it worked for me.
