Gmail archive

I accidentally sent 3 emails to the Gmail archive, but did not intend to do so.  I need to know how to access the archive so that I can delete the emails.  I am certain that I do not need them as I check my email daily.

Thank you,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Click on All Mail on the left. When you see the message, open it, and choose the Move to Inbox option to "un-archive" it. Alternatively, you can use the search feature to locate the message (the search box should be towards the top of the Gmail page). An archived email is just an email with the inbox label removed.

I do not see "All Mail"

On the right hand side click on the "More" you may have 3 dots so mouse over those and it'll display.

sorry I still don't see it.  I'm using Windows 10.

label:all mail

Put that in your search, that gives you all mail.....

That just shows all mail.  I want to show which ones are in the archive, or do all messages go to the archive?

The All Mail label is added to every message. If a message has been archived, you can find it by opening the All Mail label.

On your computer, open Gmail.
On the left side of the page, hover your mouse over the label list.
At the bottom of the list, click More. You may need to scroll down to see it.
Click All Mail.

Look on labels on the left. Most emails will have INBOX label. Those without label is probably archived
