Gmail is a fundamental tool today not only to communicate but also to organize all our work and study material.

We present seven key tools for you to get the full potential of this tool.

1. Undo Sent Mail

Maybe you ever sent an email but later regretted it. Well, Gmail gives you the ability to undo a sent email, but you have to set that option first.

-Go to Gmail General settings

-Find “Undo send”

-Set the highest setting: 30 seconds

Checking the highest setting will give you time to hit the “Undo” button that appears when sending a message.
