I love Gmail; however, I’m not exactly in love with some of the… choice… usability/interface features Google insists upon. Perhaps the most annoying “feature” of all has been the apparent inability to mark all unread messages as read.

Now, if you only ever have one page of unread emails in Gmail, then this isn’t likely an issue you’ve run into. Get up to hundreds or thousands of new emails, though, and you’ll quickly become aware.

With that in mind, I set out to achieve this should-be simple task. Luckily, it turns out that it is quite simple, though not at all obvious. As you’ll also see, it’s nowhere near as dead-simple as other email providers make it.
