Looks are saved data queries or reports. Saved Looks contain a Filter and Visualization window (mirroring the format in Explore).
When you are in Explore, the Gear in the upper right will give you the option to “Save as a Look”. Choosing this option “saves all of your choices for filters, visualizations, fields, sorting, and so forth” (Looker). The Looks you save can be added to multiple Dashboards as Look-Linked Tiles.
Looks can be deleted from within your personal folder by selecting the menu (three dots) for the Look and choosing “Move to Trash”. You can also use the checkbox for the Look, which is helpful for deleting multiple Looks at once.
