    I already know all this/that. Please stop repeating yourself.

    My friend keeps repeating the same thing to me. And finally I say to him:

    I already know all this/that. Please stop repeating yourself.

    Are both okay here?

    Yes, both are OK. "That" is probably more common.

    What about "I already know all these/those"?

    I mean "all+plural".

    "All those" would probably be better unless the things were in front of you.
