How do I delete these extraneous accounts, and2. How do I change the requirement that a log in is even required. I have already changed the Require sign-in pull down menu to Never.

    How to delete multiple accounts

    Deleting multiple documents

    That is simply more steps. What I want is for it to automatically select the next document in the list... so all I have to do is keep hitting delete. I know how to highlight sections or multiple documents... But I shouldn't have to select multiple at
    a time. As it is now, I have to physically select the next document in the list then hit delete.

    For example, in Outlook, I can run down my list of emails for the day and just hit delete. Fast and simple.

    I was once able to do that in Explorer.
