3) Drag emails between tabs
If you have Gmail on the Internet created with separate tabs or categories on the screen (like Primary, Social, and Updates), you knew you could pull conversation threads between them to re-categorize your messages? Even better, Gmail will ask you to treat all emails from the same sender in the same way in the future, saving time.
