Bookmark Specific Gmail Pages for Quicker Access
Usually, you need to head to your Gmail inbox in order to compose a new message, view your drafts, or visit another part of your inbox. Lifehack.org notes that you can actually bookmark these pages for quicker access.
I generally pin my Gmail inbox to the side of my tab bar, but that isn't ideal for everyone—in fact, it's likely to distract you into constantly checking your email. So, if you try to keep your Gmail out of sight, Lifehack says you should add a few bookmarks—to things like like Compose, Drafts, Starred, or any other specific locations—to your bookmark bar so they're easily accessible in fewer clicks. It's an incredibly simple tip, but one that could be pretty helpful if you want to minimize both distractions and mouse clicks. (Of course, you could always do it from your address bar or from an app launcher too, if you want even more speed).
You can do this with other Google services, too.
