how to download all email attachments in "g suite" (fka 'google apps' and similar to gmail)

I usually use outlook, so forgive this dumb questions about gmail.  

I have g suite account which received 5 emails and each email has 10 attachments.

I want to download the attachments to my c drive.  

I have followed several links, but none seem to work.
For instance, one link  says highlight the thread then click "forward all" to  yourself, then receive the forwarded email, and click "download all".

But each email is independent, not part of a thread.

And, all is see is "forward", not a forward all.

Click on each attachment and the download icon.

Did I forget to explain that I don't want to do 50 clicks?
I thought that was obvious.

I can understand why such a simple function might be missing from free Gmail, but I pay actual money for G Suite, and I would expect such a feature there

Unfortunately, you would need to click on the files individually.  This is a gap that also exists in Drive.  In Drive, if you download multiple files at once, it will create a zipfile rather than downloading multiple files.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Allen's solution was "click download 100 times".

My solution was "Use 3 different software packages and click about a dozen times" .

For the 100 attachments, both solutions are equally ugly.  But, if I ever have 1000 attachments, my solution would be better.

P.S. I am still disgusted that g suite does not have a better way of doing this.
