There’s nothing  like a pleasantly sorted out Gmail inbox to take the worry and stress of your life. In any case there’s one zone of your email that may not be too composed as it could be: Gmail Starred segment.



I adore utilizing stars as a part of Gmail to remind me about imperative messages or messages I need to clutch for some other time. Names are awesome and all, yet the quickness of clicking that star is vastly improved for me than setting up a group of channels or moving messages into classifications.

However did you know there’s a whole other world to the Starred area than simply yellow symbols? On the off chance that you plunge into your Gmail settings you can include red, orange, purple, green, and blue stars, and in addition check marks, colored exclamation, and different things.

You can utilize all these distinctive colors to separate between things that need a delayed or quick answer, messages you have to hold for later on in the week, or some other stuff you need to get done.

The drawback of the stars is that you’ll need to remember your scheme color; there’s no immediate approach to customize every star color with its own name or reason.

Getting Started

From your Gmail inbox, tap on the settings in the upper right corner, and from the drop menu select Settings.


At the point when the settings screen opens it ought to show you the General tab of course. Search for the Stars area near to the top. On the off chance that you’d recently like to get running with Google’s presets you can choose 4 stars or all stars to have more star colors accessible to you.

On the other hand, you can move and customize every star/symbol In use: classification from Not being used: That way you just get the quantity of stars you need or need. You can likewise move and customize stars inside the In Use: section to get the lineup precisely as you need -this will be vital later on.

Once you’re prepared to go look down to the base of the settings screen and snap Save Changes. This will take you back to the inbox.

Utilizing The Stars

When you see a message you need to add a star to, tick it once and you get the default yellow shading. Click it again and the following star in the lineup shows up.

That is all about it when utilizing more than simply the yellow stars. Appreciate the new exceedingly composed featured segment of your inbox.
