Gmail Search Tips Tricks for Power Users
(What's up ?) 1 week ago

Gmail is already a fantastic app. But if you want to supercharge your email productivity, you will need to learn how to extract every drop of power from it. One of the ways to do that is to learn some basic search tricks.

Here are some useful search tricks every Gmail power user should know.

1. Find Large Files

Type size: in the search box followed by a number of bytes to find emails with large files attached. It's useful if you're getting near your storage allowance.

2. Find Photos

Stop scrolling through emails from five years ago just to find your favorite holiday snap. Instead, type filetype: followed by one of the common image formats (for example, PNG or JPEG).

3. Find Old Messages

Have you ever tried scrolling back to emails from last year? How about from three years ago? It takes ages.

Instead, use after:[date], before:[date], older:[date], or newer:[date] to find messages from a certain timeframe.

4. Find Important Emails

Google automatically adds an Important flag to emails from people you frequently contact.

To find those emails in your inbox, type is:important and hit Enter. All the fluff will be filtered out.

5. Find Emails From a Specific Person

Struggling to find that single six-month-old email, but you can remember the sender's name? Type from: followed by the person's name, and you'll have it on your screen in seconds.

6. Use Google Search Tricks in Gmail

All the regular search operators that you use on Google every day also work in Gmail. We've covered some of the most useful elsewhere on the site.
