I did some test campaigns last year. How do I delete/reset from scratch

Im having trouble doing something so simple. I cant find a way to delete all my campaigns. I did some test last year and did it the "wrong" way. Ive watched some videos and want to give it another try. But the old campaigns are distracting me (I have a small case of ocd, unnecessary things bother/distract me and i cant move forward).

 

Please help.

 

Thank You

Removed is deleted. If it is distracting you, look under the campaign tabs and change your campaign view to "All but removed."  You will no longer see them. You'll only see paused and enabled.

Also, for the record. I have "removed" these campaigns, but they still show. How can I permanently delete them?

The screenshot you shared is the adgroup level. This means you were in the adgroup of a removed campaign. The data will still be there.  Move to the campaign level and you should not see removed campaigns.

Yes that did it. Oh man, something so simple. This is going to be harder than I thought. But gotta learn it.

Thanks again!
