If you're receiving a lot of email in Gmail every day, you can set up folders for each label you set up, or use the auto-sort feature. However, there are emails that you say "I don't want it to sort into a folder, but I don't want it to pile up in my Inbox. But I don't want to delete ......".

"Archive" is useful in such cases. The moment you click "Archive" the email disappears from your inbox. This will make you feel refreshed.

But do you know where the email went?

So, I would like to introduce "How to Check Archived Mail" that you seem to know but don't know. The verification is done on the screen of the PC, but you can also do the same procedure from the smartphone.

Check all Mail

The first step is to "Archive". Start Gmail and select the email you want to archive.

Google
▲Click the email you want to archive

When you open an email, click the "Archive" icon in the upper left corner. Then, you won't be able to find the email in your inbox.

Google
▲Click the "Archive" icon

To find the missing archived mail, click "More" in the left menu to open the menu.

Google
▲Click the "More"

And click on "All Mail".

Google
▲Click on "All Mail", then...

I found the mail that I archived earlier. If you archive an email and it disappears from your inbox, you can check it from "All Mail".

Google
▲Found archived mail!

If you accidentally archive an email, click the icon in the upper right corner to return it to your inbox.

Google
▲Click the "Move to Inbox" icon to bring it back to your Inbox.
