When I installed Outlook 2016 on a Windows 10 PC, it automatically downloaded all of my mail history from Google mail.  Now I want to delete some of those emails in batches.  I would like to do a search for a keyword in the spam, such as "sweepstakes" and then click a "Delete All" button, or something like that.  How do I do that?

Best that I can suggest is do the search. In the result search window, if you want to delete them all, then single left-click on the first item in the list to highlight it, then scroll to the bottom of the list, and then single left-click on the last item while holding down the Shift key. This should now result in highlighting all emails in the list. Then hit the delete key or the trash icon (if there is one...I would assume there is, but I am not using Outlook 2016 at the moment and don't even have a Windows computer running an older version of Outlook fired up right now...using a Mac at the moment).
