If they're all in the same folder, delete the folder.

A download...is just another file placed on a partition...on a hard drive or other storage device.
I really don't understand what the question is that you are trying to pose.

As SpywareDoc says, if it is just files you have accumulated - images, music, videos, whatever - just delete the files or the folders they are in. Probably the simplest way to do this is to use 'Windows Explorer'. RIGHT click on the start button, then click on 'Explore' and it opens ! From there you can open up your 'C' drive, or wherever these files are, and select the files you want rid off.
If it is a complete folder you want to get rid of, RIGHT click on the folder, then click 'Delete' in the pop-up menu. If it is a file here and a file there in a folder, hold the 'Ctrl' key down while you click on each file you want to get rid of, then RIGHT click on any one of the selected files, and, again, click on delete. If it is a consecutive group of files in a folder, click on the first one in the group, hold the 'Shift' key down, then click on the last one. Again, RIGHT click on any of the selected files, and again click 'Delete'. Just remember that if you use the 'Recycle Bin', to empty it when you have finished selecting files and folders to delete. They are not actually deleted until you have done this.
If it is software that you have downloaded and installed, then use 'Start / Control Panel / Add/Remove programs'. From the list of installed programs that will eventually appear, select the ones you want to delete - one at a time - and select 'Uninstall' towards the top of the screen.
