How To View Archived Emails In Gmail App

Have you ever archived an email on your Gmail app and later wondered where it went? Archived emails are not deleted, they are simply moved out of your inbox to help keep it clean and organized. These emails can still be accessed, and in this blog post, we’ll guide you on how to view your archived emails in the Gmail app.

Steps to View Archived Emails

The following are the steps you need to take:

  1. Open your Gmail App.
  2. Tap on the three horizontal lines at the top left corner of the app. This will open a sidebar menu.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom and tap on “All Mail”.
  4. Your archived emails will be found here, mixed in with your active emails.

Note: The ‘All Mail’ folder contains all your emails, whether they are in your Inbox, Sent, Drafts, or any other label. They are arranged according to the date the emails were received. So you may need to scroll down or use the search bar at the top to find the specific archived email you are looking for.

To make your search easier, you can use the search bar at the top of the page. Simply type in keywords, sender’s name, or the subject of the email you’re searching for, and tap on the magnifying glass or hit enter to initiate the search.

How to Unarchive an Email

If you want to move an email back to your inbox, you can “unarchive” it. Here’s how:

  1. Open the archived email.
  2. Tap on the three dots at the top right corner of the screen.
  3. Select “Move to Inbox”.

And just like that, your email should reappear in your inbox.


Archiving emails in Gmail is a helpful tool to keep your inbox clutter-free. Now that you know how to view archived emails in the Gmail app, you can confidently keep your inbox clean, knowing you can access your archived emails whenever you need them. Happy emailing!
