Gmail it is one of the most widely used email services in the world. Millions of messages are sent daily that are stored in the “inbox” of its users, trying to stay organized thanks to its content classification.
However, sometimes it is problematic to maintain an order within the account, especially if you are one of those users who receive dozens of post per day, some of them being of utmost importance, which you possibly want to keep “on hand”.
With this in mind, Gmail for years implemented a feature to mark and store starred messages. Said tool broadly allows to mark with a star the messages that the user wants to remain in the “section.Highlights“, which is located on the left side of the application.
Although it is true that for many this tool is not enough. However, users may not be aware that you can enable various types of stars to distinguish important messages from each other, to classify them in different categories, for example to categorize emails sent by a specific person.
How to activate new featured categories in Gmail?
To customize the tool “Highlights“It is enough to access the Gmail application, through a computer or a cell phone. Subsequently, it is necessary to log into the account in which you want to customize this function.
Subsequently, it is necessary to enter the configuration section, pressing on the gear icon that is located at the top of the screen, and then select “See all configurations“.
In the General tab, you have to scroll down (to the Stars section). Once inside you can add and change the colors and symbols to your rotation, dragging and dropping from “Not in use” to “In use“.
Once you have configured it to your liking be sure to click on “Save Changes”, at the bottom of your settings before continuing, otherwise they will be lost.
To search for emails in a specific star category, simply search for the star color in the search bar at the top of the app or website.
