Access multiple Gmail accounts

If you have more than one active Gmail account, you can switch between them easily. Simply click your profile icon on the right side and choose Add Another Account. From there you’ll just sign in, and you’ll be able to access it when you click your profile icon in the future.

Set up a signature

Setting up a signature can save time when composing an email and it also makes your email look more professional. To set up a signature for all outgoing messages, open Gmail > Settings gear > See All Settings. From there, scroll down until you see Signature and click Create New. Any signatures you’ve created will be visible in settings where you can edit or delete them at any time.

Undo a sent message

Ever sent and email and remembered the mistake later? Luckily Gmail has a grace feature called Undo Send. Right after you hit Send, a message at the bottom of the screen will pop up saying the message was sent, but there’s also the option to Undo or View Message.

When you click Undo, Gmail will stop sending the message. You can also edit how long you have to cancel a message. To get Undo Send set up, go to Settings > See All Settings and scroll down to Undo Send. From there you can set a send cancellation window of five, 10, 20 or 30 seconds.

Spell check

Gmail’s spell-checking tool helps you send flawless messages. The spell checker can help with words you’re actually unsure of when typing too fast. And Gmail will keep the word underlined if it changes it so you can choose to undo if it’s not a change you want made. On top of that, Gmail has Grammar and Autocorrect features as well. Everything can be turned on or off in Settings > Spell Check.

Mark and Label emails

Have a lot of emails coming in? Labels can make your inbox way more manageable. They’re kind of like filters that make your inbox more manageable. Labels live in the sidebar where you’ll find Inbox, Sent, Junk and other folders.

Scroll down at click Create New Label. From there, you can name your label as well as group labels. For example, if you’re getting organized for school, the main label could be Biology Class and you could group in labels about class projects and submitted assignments.
