How To Quickly Clean Up Gmail

If your Gmail is cluttered with old, unread or unimportant messages, it can slow down your productivity and make it more difficult to find the information you need. Here are some easy tips on how to quickly clean up your Gmail and keep it tidy.

1. Use the “Clean Up” Feature

Gmail’s built-in “Clean Up” feature allows you to quickly delete old or unimportant messages. To use this feature, navigate to the “More” option in the sidebar and select “Clean Up”. This will automatically delete all messages that are older than 30 days.

2. Delete Messages in Bulk

If you have a lot of messages to delete, you can do this in bulk. First, you need to select the messages you want to delete. To do this, check the box next to each message. Once you’ve selected the messages, click on the “Trash” icon at the top of the page. This will move all selected messages to the Trash.

  /*sample code to select all emails*/
  /*click the checkbox at the top left corner of your inbox*/
  /*then click on the 'Trash' icon at the top of the page*/

3. Use Filters

You can also use filters to automatically sort and delete messages. For example, you can create a filter that deletes all messages from a certain sender or that contain certain words.

  /*sample code to create a filter*/
  /*click on the 'Search mail' box at the top of the page*/
  /*then click on 'Create filter'*/
  /*set your filter criteria and click on 'Create filter'*/

4. Use the “Archive” Feature

The “Archive” feature allows you to move messages out of your inbox without deleting them. This is useful if you want to keep a message for future reference, but don’t want it cluttering up your inbox. To archive a message, simply select it and then click on the “Archive” button at the top of the page.

  /*sample code to archive an email*/
  /*click on the email to select it*/
  /*then click on the 'Archive' button at the top of the page*/

Remember, keeping your Gmail clean and organized can help improve your productivity and efficiency. So take some time to clean up your Gmail today!
