Are you overwhelmed by your email inbox? Email overwhelms and irritates most of us. Part of the problem is that most of us were never given any training on email. We were just given an email address and no instructions.
Joanna Stern, of the WSJ, created a short video with 10 time-saving tips to help you master your Gmail inbox. Her video shows you keyboard shortcuts to increase your efficiency, hidden features and tips to turn you into a Gmail ninja.
Note: How you get to your Gmail settings has changed since this video was recorded. Follow these instructions to change to your Gmail settings.

The settings for the Preview Pane were moved to the “Inbox” tab in the Gmail Settings.
