Whenever you login to your Gmail account, you will be displayed a hierarchal list of emails based on received date. However, what if you want to only view unread messages in your Inbox?
In previous editions of Gmail Tips, we have told you how to mark all unread messages as read, and also how to sort unread messages based on dates. Using another simple trick, you can only view the unread messages in your Gmail inbox.
The tip involves performing a search and saving the URL as a bookmark. Here are the steps involved for viewing only unread messages in Gmail inbox.
Step 1: Login to Gmail and perform a search using is:unread in:inbox. Use the exact terms without the quotes and click on the Search mail button. The search will display all the unread emails from your inbox.
Step 2: Once the search has loaded, bookmark the URL. (Hint: Pressing the shortcut keys Ctrl + D, should do the trick in most browsers). Give the bookmark a appropriate name and save it.
The next time you want to view the unread messages in your Gmail Inbox, click on the bookmark. You do not need to create multiple bookmarks for different accounts. When you click on the bookmark, it will display the unread emails, for the account you have logged in to Gmail with.
