    Going through Google dashboard on my laptop then click on Photos i see i have 183 albums from ages ago with no photos in just empty.
    How do you delete these as there just a black empty square with a date saying 0.
    Thanks

    That's just your album archive -- no one can see it except for you, and it's not taking up any space. But if you want to delete it, click the menu button at the upper right, then Manage in Google Photos. When that shows up, click the menu button at the upper right again, then Delete Album.

    You can also just go directly to your Google Photos site, click Albums, and delete them from there.

    If you click on one of those empty folders, what options do you get if you then click on the menu button at the upper right?

    Great! Unfortunately, I don't think there's a way to multiselect the empty folders to mass delete.
