When you click on the e-mail, a box should open with delete in it. To delete all e-mails, select from the edit menu, "select all" and then click the delete button in the upper left hand corner of the mail toolbar. You can also delete by selecting the message and clicking delete in the mail toolbar. If you do not see the mail toolbar, go to "view" in the menu bar and click on toolbars and check "mail toolbar".

There are two choices depending on where you are. If you open an Email and wish to delete it, there are actually two buttons unless you've hidden a toolbar. Then only one. When you delete it, it doesn't go away. It goes to a Delete file shown on the left of your screen. A second Delete, does the job permanently. If you don't see the Delete, you've messed with the UI.

Ok i've found out how to delete single emails but I cannot find an edit button or a view button on my emails on my pc. But on my phone I use the edit button to delete. Where are these buttons on my pc?

You have a few Toolbar options In Tbird. look at the other options also, so you can customize your UI. Using CCleaner changes your settings, so don't.

Right click at the top of the Thunderbird and you should find "menu bar", click that and it will show a complete menu, file, edit, view, etc.
