Remove Multiple Pictures at Once in Excel

In Excel, you can use the Go To Special feature to select all objects (including pictures) in your worksheet. Then you press Delete to remove all your images at once.

To start removing your pictures, first, open your spreadsheet with Microsoft Excel. At the bottom of your spreadsheet, click the worksheet in which you want to delete all pictures.

In Excel’s ribbon at the top, click the “Home” tab.

Excel will select all objects (including pictures) in your current worksheet. To remove these selected items, press Delete on your keyboard.
