Top 10 Awesome Gmail Tips and Tricks



Gmail is the most popular email service that exists today. It has completely simplified the way how we manage our emails.


Let’s take a look at Top 10 Awesome Gmail Tips and Tricks to improve your productivity:

1) Access Gmail Offline:

Google has launched its official Google Chrome Plugin – Gmail Offline Beta, which is a Gmail app built to support offline access, allowing you to read mails responded to, searched & archived.
All your offline data will be stored on your computer, so don’t store this on a public computer.

2) Access Multiple Accounts At Once in the Same Browser:

To enable this feature, visit google.com/accounts & click the link next to “Multiple sign-in.”
After you sign into your 1st account, you can sign in with multiple additional accounts from the new accounts menu in the upper right hand corner of Gmail, then easily toggle back & forth between them.
You can even open multiple Gmail tabs — one for each of your accounts.

3) View All your Google Products associated with your Gmail account at one place:

Visit google.com/dashboard which offers a simple view into all the data associated with your Google Account.

4) Two -Step Verification:

So in case, if you forget to log out of your email on your work computer, you could sign yourself out of it from your home computer.

8) Dots or without dots, it’s your username:

Do you know that Gmail doesn’t recognize dots as characters within a username?
It means that if your e-mail address is username@gmail.com, or user.name@gmail.com or u.s.e.r.n.a.m.e@gmail.com, all are yours. Even Facebook doesn’t recognize dots within a username.

9) Consolidate all your email accounts:

If you have more than one email account, you can consolidate them all under one Gmail account for sending & receiving.
Just Go to Gmail Settings -> Accounts -> And Add another mail account.

10) Keyboard Shortcuts:

Keyboard shortcuts saves your time by allowing you to never take your hands off the keyboard to use the mouse.
