I've lots of completed tasks in Google Tasks since using it for couple of years. And I wonder how to clear the competed tasks list. Regarding this Google Groups discussion, which is closed due to inactivity, it's not possible.

But I've found one solution: it's marking completed tasks as uncompleted and deleting them from list. It's ok for coupled of tasks, or maybe tens, but not for thousands.

Is there any way to permanently delete them, once and forever (except completely deleting the Google profile)?

PS: I've also fount out that it takes up to 1 month to delete those tasks from Google servers completely, which is quite some time.

The short of it is go to Actions under Tasks then select Clear Completed Tasks. Unfortunately as Google states in the link up above this just hides them, but unless you select to view them again, they're out of sight. There is no bulk delete or delete upon completion setting. Only deleting 1 task at a time. Why???? That question you have to take up with Google.

@Johnny_D: The answer to the question is, essentially, "you can't". This is (IMNSHO) a shortcoming of Tasks. –  Al E. Dec 6 '13 at 15:27
