In the following screen, you can click on any file to preview. If you want to delete one or more of the items that appear, first select each item that you want to delete by clicking the circle in the upper left corner of the thumbnail (until it has a check mark). Then click on the trash can icon in the upper right corner of the window.

Please note that files deleted from here will not be available in the "Bin" or "Trash" folder in Google Drive. They will be permanently withdrawn from your account.

Depending on the overall size, Google will need some minutes to delete the selected files.

If you often run out of space in Google services, you may need to upgrade your storage with Google One. Good luck!
