4) Save important emails – You can save a message by clicking the “More Options” button then select “Save to Inbox.

5) Add an email signature to all your emails – Instead of typing it out each time, you can create a pre-written message that will always be included at the bottom of every email.

6) Find attachments in your messages – If you’ve searched for a message and can’t find it, but know that it has an attachment, make sure to click “Show full conversation” before continuing.

7) Make a Gmail shortcut on your desktop – Create shortcuts to specific messages or folders so that you can easily access them without having to search for them.
