I have a feature class with about 50 fields. I want to delete the first 47 of them and keep the last 3. I know the "Delete Fields" geoprocessing tool can do this, but it's a pain to choose each field from the list box. Any other ways to go about this?

I see.  Improving the UI in the gp tool is in the product plan as indicated on this idea: https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-pro-ideas/change-pro-delete-field-tool-ux/idi-p/927087

Wonderful! The "Add Many" ability works well in my case. Thanks!

Thanks Kory. I guess I'm trying to do this in a geoprocessing model. I have a big layer with too much information and want to simplify it before creating a hosted feature layer and adding it to a Webmap.
