Bored with Gmail Appearance?

Sometimes I stare at Gmail for long periods it really does get tedious. Maybe I need to get a life. There is some truth in that.
Alternatively, I can change Gmail themes. Its kind of fun and easy to do. When the weather is a bit overcast, I dip into themes and select a brighter theme. Or I just jazz up the appearance just for the hell of it.
Whatever your motivation, if you'd like to know how to change the appearance of your Gmail, follow the steps in this video I hammered together, and I hope it helps you.

How to use Gmail Labs

Whilst Gmail Labs don't represent mainline tools and certainly aren't necessary for everyday email service, its worth knowing about them. I maybe head over to Labs maybe once a month and scroll through to see if they have been updated. I use several all the time, such as Insert Picture, and the one that gives a larger set of emoticons. This video will show you how to find and engage them.
If you have any questions, you know what to do.

Never miss another Gmail

Have you ever missed a Gmail because it was filtered off and buried someone in your collection of Gmails? 
For this tip to work you will need a Gmail shortcut on your bookmark bar, like this. 
Gmail have a tool called Labels. ie Inbox. all, spam, read, unread. Unread is the one that interests us. 
So type into your Gmail search box is colon unread and hit enter. This will list out all your current unread Gmail.
Now, copy the URL.
Next right click on your Gmail bookmark, and select edit.
Delete the current URL, and paste (Ctrl + V for Victor) the new URL and click save.
Now every time you click your Gmail bookmark, you will only get a list of your unread Gmails. 
If you need to see your inbox, then click inbox on the left.
How cool is that? You will never miss another unread Gmail again. This a great way of staying focused on whats important. Thanks for watching.
