Mark All Emails as Read in Gmail

I use a Gmail a lot and quite often I send myself lots of information as it makes a nice central storage point for wherever I will be.

It can be quite annoying though when you have loads of unread emails, which can be pretty off-putting. Gmail only seems to allow you to select emails with a tick box and then set a read. Well that is fine if you don’t have thousands of unread emails!

To set all emails as read in Gmail, simply do the following:

  1. Type the following into the Gmail search box “is:unread”
  2. Select theĀ  “All” link below the “archive” button
  3. Click the link that says “Select all conversations that match this search”
  4. Select theĀ  “Mark All as Read” from the drop down box

Hope that helps
