Tips, Tricks, and one-point lessons to help you with G Suite.

Archive or mute Gmail conversations

To clean up your inbox without deleting your emails, you can archive or mute them. Your emails are moved to a label called "All Mail."

  • When you archive a message thread: The message will come back to your inbox when someone replies to it.  (This is also true if you delete a conversation and it is still in your Trash.)

  • When you mute a message thread: Any replies stay out of your inbox. You can search for the conversation if you want to find it again.

Archive an email

  1. Open Gmail.
  2. Open the message or check the box to the left of it. To archive multiple emails, check the box next to all emails you want to archive.
  3. Near the top of the page, click Archive Archive.

Tip: If keyboard shortcuts are turned on, you can also press e to archive an email you're looking at.

Mute or ignore messages

  1. Open Gmail.
  2. Open or select the conversation.
  3. In the top right, click More and then Mute.

Tip: To mute more quickly, use the keyboard shortcut m.

Copying your email signature from Outlook to Google

Here are some tips for copying your email signature from Outlook to GMail.

If you try to copy directly from the settings in Outlook where your Signature is shown, the formatting is lost.  So it is best to copy direct from a mail already sent.

Simply go into one of your sent emails in Outlook and copy the entire signature

Then in Gmail go to Settings->General->Signature and paste.


By selecting a mail in Sent Items in Outlook, and then copying the mail signature directly from the mail itself, this can be pasted into the Gmail signature settings and the format is kept.

Remember to change the actual email address on the signature in Gmail to the new format in Google.

Archive in Gmail

Archive, in Gmail, only means that you remove the "Inbox" label.
The messages really haven't been moved anywhere.  You can find them by using search, browsing any personal labels you may have applied or by browsing through "All mail."

By choosing "All Mail" on the left navigation in Gmail (it is under "More", where you would also find your "Spam" folder), you will see all of your mail.  Those emails in your inbox will show with an Inbox label.

You could also use a search query to view only your Archived emails.  In the search bar, type or paste this query:  has:nouserlabels -in:Sent -in:Chat -in:Draft -in:Inbox
If this is something you want to refer to often, you could also add a Quick Link while you're on the search results page, and name it "Archived Only", say.  In future you would merely need to click on the new link in order to view only archived emails.

Adding languages to spell check

To add additional languages for spell checking, please try the following:
  • On the top right corner of the window, go to Chrome Menu( ≡ )  Settings > Show advanced settings > Language and input settings > click Add.
  • For each desired language, on the right-side check the box for Use this language for spell checking. Then Chrome will show downloading the spell checking dictionary.
And of course, the shortcut to access all the above is: from textfields and textboxes, right-click > Language settings.
  • You can right-click inside the textfields and textboxes > Spellcheck.
    You will find the following:
A context-menu list of currently available spellcheck languages.
A link for "Language settings" to access adding/editing languages
The Custom Spelling Dictionary.

To disable the spell checking, go to the Spellcheck Context menu and uncheck Check the spelling of text fields.

Finally, the Spellcheck context-menu also has a check option for "Ask Google for suggestions", which controls whether internet transfer will be used to get Google spell-correcting suggestions.
