open the folder and move to the first file with the particular extention and now, press and hold the ctrl key and start arrowing down through the list of files and every time you land on another file with same extention, press the spacebar to select it. be sure to continue to hold the ctrl key. once you have selected all the files with the same extention, press the delete key and the files will be deleted once you confirm you wish to delete the number of multi-files.
