Keep your inbox junk-free and organized

Computing
[MUSIC] If you've signed up for a bunch of newsletters and shopping sites, you probably have dozens of emails coming in daily. Once and for all, here are a few tips to help you organize your inbox. Box and keep it clean. First, unsubscribe from any unnecessary marketing emails. My favorite way to do this is to head to your inbox and search for unsubscribe. Then open up one of those marketing emails or newsletters. Scroll all the way to the bottom where it's probably hidden. Hit unsubscribe and it'll take you to the website to complete the process. As an alternative, you can use a service like unroll.me. It's designed to automatically gather all of the newsletters and emails you're signed up. [UNKNOWN] And help you unsubscribe from them in one fell swoop. So, it does all the heavy lifting for you. So, we'll head to unroll.me. Log in with your email. Select the mailers you don't wanna receive anymore. And you're free from any future junk. [MUSIC] Once you're clear of all the junk, the next stop is to organize your inbox. One of the best ways to do this is by using filters. With them, you can make any emails from a specific sender, automatically labeled, sent to a folder, archived, or even forwarded to another account. I'm using Gmail, but this feature is available for most email services. To get started, I'm going to make all the emails from my friends, sent to a friend label. So I'll select a few emails. Then I'll go up. To the More tab and select Filter messages like this. Then in this screen, I click Create filter with this search, and here I decide what I want to do. In this case, I want to apply a label so I'll check that box, hit. New label, call it friends, create, and now, anytime I get email from those people, they'll automatically be labeled as friends. Another way I keep my inbox really clean is by using. Shortcut, it helps me sort through new emails really quickly, and helps me reach inbox zero at the end of each day, which means my inbox is empty. [MUSIC] Here are some of my favorites, you can use j and k to scroll through your emails. If you want to select an email click x, then from there you can hit. E to archive the email, L to apply a label, or hit pound to delete it. So those are just a few tips to help you keep your inbox really clean and organized so that you can focus on the emails that are really most important.
