Google Tip #1 - Drag and Drop Attachments

You can add an attachment by dragging the file to the e-mail you are composing. Open the folder where your attachment is located and simply drag the file into the body of the e-mail. A box will appear that says “Drop files here.” Once you have dropped the file, it will upload the attachment. You can even do this with multiple files. Highlight all of the files you want to attach and drag them into the e-mail.

Google Tip #2 - Undo Send

Have you ever sent and email and then thought “I forgot something!” or “Who did I send that to?”

Well - now you can have up to 30 seconds to pull the email back and make those last minutes corrections.

In your inbox, click on the cog/wheel and choose "Settings" from the drop-down.

Click on the "Labs" tab from the top menu.
From the list of labs, scroll to the "Undo Send" lab.

Click the radio button to "Enable" this lab.

Be sure to click "Save Changes" at the bottom of the page.

Now under the General Settings tab you can set the amount of time available to undo the sending of the email. Choices range from 5 to 30 seconds.


When you send an email a pop-up will show on the top of the gmail page that will allow you to “undo” the sending of the email.


Clicking “Undo” will stop the email from being sent and allow for any changes that need to be made.

..or you could Paint It Black...

Subject search breaks it up and allows for More Like This. -->

Type searches allow for more refined searching -
do you want a photo, head shots only, clip art, line drawings?.
You can search that way, too.
