Did you delete an email by accident? Do you want to restore it to your Inbox folder? This can happen to anyone. Many of us get a ton of emails every day. It is only normal to delete something by accident. But, some of these emails could be very important.

They have some information that you really need. Now, that can be a problem. But, don’t worry, deleted emails can be restored. If you put them in the “Trash” folder, you can still get them back. Here we will show you how. 

It might be a little tricky to figure it out by yourself. That’s why we decided to make this simple step-by-step guide just for you. If you follow it, you will restore all of your emails in seconds. So, without further ado, let’s get right to it. This is how you can get deleted emails back. 

Step 1

The first thing you should do is log in to your Gmail account. Type the email and password. Next, go to the “Trash” folder. It is on the left side of the screen right under “Drafts”. Click on it to open the folder. Here, you can see all the emails you have deleted. As you can see, they are still in this folder. 

Step 2

 What you want to do now is select the email you want to restore. Click on the empty square right next to it and you will get this checkmark. The checkmark means you have successfully selected the email. Next, go to the little icon that looks like a folder with an arrow in it. The arrow points right. This is the “Move to” option. Click on it. 

Step 3

The “Move to” option will now bring up a drop-down menu. Here, you can select where you want to move the deleted email to. Since we want to move it to our “Inbox” folder, we will click on “Inbox”. It is right above the “Spam” folder. 


Step 4

To find the email you just moved, go to your “Inbox” folder. Click on “Inbox” which is right under the “+” sign that says “Compose”. You can now see the email you restored. It will appear on the top of the list. 


That’s it! You have now successfully restored your deleted email. You can do the same thing with multiple emails. Just select the ones you need and move them to wherever you want. It is an easy, quick, and efficient way to restore important information.
