If you’ve ever created a group in Gmail, you know how enlightening it is to have all your incoming email organized. But after a while, just like with most things, groups can become a bit too much to handle. Thankfully, managing and deleting these groups is easy — and this guide will show you how!
What are groups in Gmail?
In short: Google Groups for the Web. You can think of them as the virtual equivalent of having an inbox full of people; they’re basically folders where anything sent to the group gets stored together on one page. This makes finding that old message from Bob that has absolutely nothing to do with your current project way easier than searching through everything in your general mailbox. And because most people don’t want to be wading through a bunch of messages every time they need something from someone, Gmail automatically sorts the group folder into subfolders, which you can see below Bob’s message.
Why would I want to delete a group?
The main reason people delete groups is because the group becomes too large. Oftentimes, you’ll start a new group with maybe two or three people to swap links and share images, but inevitably more and more people will join without you even realizing it (because they were invited by other members). Before you know it, your link-exchange folder has 130+ messages in it — and that’s far from ideal for anyone who just wants to get rid of all those marketing emails (or totally embarrassing drunken party photos) without going through each message individually. Deleting a specific folder works great if you’re only looking to nix one thread/picture at a time; however.
