After a long time using Gmail, anyone can miss a few emails, hence keeping them in unread status. In my situation, the Gmail app says I have several unread emails in my Primary inbox on all of my devices. It makes me feel irritated.
Having the ability to list only unread emails in your primary inbox can be extremely helpful, especially if you’re trying to keep your inbox organized and clutter-free. It can also save you time since you won’t have to scroll through a long list of emails to find the ones you haven’t read yet.
So, if you’re looking for a way to quickly see which emails you haven’t read yet, here’s how to list only unread emails in Gmail’s primary inbox.
You can search them using
in search operators.
is:unread in:inbox is:unread category:primary
- The first step is to open your Gmail account. Once you’re logged in, locate the search bar at the top of the page. In the search bar, type in “is:unread”. This will automatically search your inbox for any emails that are unread.
- Next, you’ll want to click the down arrow to the right of the search bar and select “Show search options”. This will expand the search options and allow you to customize your search. Here, you can select the “In: Primary” option, which will limit the search to only emails in your primary inbox.
- Once you’ve made your selections, click the “Search” button at the bottom of the search options window. This will display a list of all the emails in your primary inbox that are unread. You can then click on any of the emails to open them and read them.
