Whether it’s work, family obligations or just keeping up with lots of newsletters, simply follow these steps to organize your Gmail inbox.

1. Steer clear of spam

Gmail protects users from nearly 15 billion unwanted messages a day, blocking more than 99.9% of spam, phishing, and malware.

But if a message pops up that makes it past the filters, you can report it as spam by checking the box near your message, then clicking the Report Spam icon.

2. Archive emails in bulk

One way is to minimize the number of emails you’re looking at by archiving in bulk. You can select all the emails from a specific sender, or click the arrow to select only read, unread, starred, or unstarred emails. Once you’ve done that, hit Archive to remove them from your inbox view without deleting them entirely.

3. Mute email threads that get out of hand

You can mute certain email threads so you don’t see every update pop into your inbox, and instead, these emails are sent to the “All Mail” label.

On desktop, check the box to the left of your message in your inbox, click the three-dot menu near the top of the page and select Mute. On mobile, tap the message, click the three-dot menu on the top right of your screen and select Mute.

4. Separate incoming emails by creating multiple email addresses with a plus sign

If you sign up for a gym membership with youremailaddress+gym@gmail.com, you can set up a filter or label to designate emails coming from your gym.

Try it with online shopping, or even social media sites, to keep things clear of clutter.

5. Keep your messages safe

Protect your entire Google account by taking a Security Checkup and a Privacy Checkup, then take the recommended actions like choosing a secure password, enabling 2-factor authentication, and adding in Account Recovery information.
