Technology Tips of the Week: Clean up your Gmail Inbox

There are a few ways to clean up your Gmail inbox to prepare for summer vacation!

  • Create folders to organize important emails and delete the ones you do not need. To create a folder, on the left menu of Gmail (under categories) choose “Create New Label”.

Here is video tutorial that explains how select files to put in folders then delete the rest of the existing emails (even if there are multiple pages or thousands of emails!).

Places to back-up...

  • Home Folder Screen Shot 2017-06-13 at 8.34.12 AM.png(Home is only stored on the computer)
  • Downloads folder (many times you do not need these files, but look there just in case).
