Gmail Tips: How to Enable the Send & Archive Button and/or Set the Default Gmail Text Style

Enabled the Send & Archive button and keep your inbox cleaner

If your Gmail inbox contains a long list of emails that you’ve already replied to (and by default they’ll stay in your inbox even after you’ve replied), here’s a tip that allows you to reply and archive an email at the same time. So, when you reply to someone, their email is moved from the inbox to the “all mail” folder as soon as you hit the “Send & Archive” button.

So how do you get the “Send & Archive button”? Easy!

Open Gmail, click on the gear icon near the top right and click “See all settings”.

Now when you reply to an email using the Send & Archive button, the mail you replied to is moved out of your inbox and archived in the “All Mail” folder, making for a much less cluttered inbox… plus you will still have a copy of the mail in your Sent folder and the All Mail folder.

      Hi Yvonne… Happy Thanksgiving. I am not an Android expert. I use an Android phone but I’ve not taken the time to really get into it… I use it to make calls, text, and read the news.I’m sorry 🙁
