There are two ways that you can delete Tasks from your To Do Lists. You can individually delete Tasks in your list or you can delete all of the finished Tasks in your list. Finished tasks are tasks that appear gray with a strike through the text to indicate that you have completed the Task.

Deleting individual Tasks

You can delete single Tasks in your list regardless of their status (Finished, unfinished, priority level, etc.).

Deleting Finished Tasks

You can delete multiple tasks at once by clicking on the "All Tasks" button at the top of your To Do List and selecting the "Delete Finished Tasks" button. Follow the steps in the image below:

After you click on the "OK" button in the pop-up dialog your deleted tasks will be moved to the task trash can. These tasks will stay in the trash can for 30 days. After this point, the tasks will be automatically deleted. Once tasks are permanently deleted from your trash can there will not be a way to restore them.

To Do List limits

There is no limit to the number of tasks that you can have on a To Do List. However, it is not recommended to have more than 1,000 tasks on a list. If you have more than 1,000 tasks, you will see a slower list performance and there's a possibility that the order of your tasks may switch or fail to change position when you reorder them.

If you have more than 1,000 tasks, you'll see your task number show up in red above your list like below:

The easiest way to delete several tasks at once is to delete all finished tasks as we show further up in this article.
