In Gmail, you can take back most actions — undue labeling, excessive deletion or even premature sending. It's easy, too.
Undo, Undelete, Unarchive, Unlabel and More in Gmail
To take back an action (and even an email) in Gmail:
- Click undo in the yellow notification area confirming your latest action.
- If you do not see the notification area, scroll to the top.
- After the notification has faded:
- Press z.
Note that you can only undo the latest action. Pressing z repeatedly has no additional effect.
Quickly Visit a Recently Deleted Message
If you have deleted a message recently, you do not have to open the Trash in Gmail. You can find it in your browser history (or the Back button); it should open just fine.
Unsend in Gmail
To undo sending emails, make sure Undo Send is enabled.
