Download Manager: Purge Cue

What is the Purge Cue command for. I expected it to empty the cue, but that doesn’t happen.

How can I empty a long cue of items the I do not want to download, without having to tick the checkbox on each single item?

I cannot find a “select all” command, which I would have followed by “delete”.

The command purges finished/failed downloads (e.g. if automatic purging is disabled).

The command Edit > Select All is supported by the download manager, afterwards use Edit > Delete or just press Backspace/Delete or click the “-” button or use the contextual/action menu.

As so often, simpler than I thought.
