I don't use my gmail account that much but want to start moving to this account. Soooo my question is about labels. I used folders in my other email account and super helpful.
I see that I can add what they call a label. And that label, let's say I call it recipes, would appear on the left hand side ... you know with inbox, spam, trash the usual. (it seems like what I would call a folder, kind of)
So if I understand correctly. If I get an email, again lets say it has a recipe. I can click on the label option above the email (and click on the "recipe" label and the email would appear in there.
BUT it also appears in my inbox.
******* Oh wait I realized ---------------- so I can just click on that email, and "move" it to that label so its not cluttering your inbox. Or I can click on the email and drag and drop into that "recipe label". So what's the benefit of having it in both your inbox and in the label (technically the same just in 2 places? I'm probably just missing something.
If you get recipe emails from certain addresses, you can create a filter that will apply the Recipe label and archive the email. Archiving moves an email out of the inbox. The filter would look similar to this one.
Matches: from:(@plantoeat) Do this: Skip Inbox, Apply label "Plan To Eat"

Good to know. Thx so much!!. I'll have to look at archive and see what you are saying.
Soooo if I have this right.... if you just want to keep a bunch of "emails" together (for future reference, for example, info about a trip you are planning) you would have to make a label (which kinda seems like a folder to me) and move them to that label. If I got this. if I have the email open and click on the tab (and the one that I want) the email will appear under the tab, but also in your inbox.
Another question ......
Do you ever comment on YT vids, I know you have to be signed into google to comment, so when i just tried it,.... I can comment on the vid but it shows my first and last name. Wellllll, I wouldn't mind if I was a big incognito. I guess I'll see if I can have two google accounts (but maybe I have to use different info, like for my gmail I used my cell to get verification code). Hmmm. Or maybe those people signed up for a YT account and just use to comment.
I went on to that YT video and if I wanted to comment, it said something like by completing this action you are creating a channel. Hmmm. Anyone comment on YouTube videos?? Thx.
