comment Duplicates files in Google Drive
I don't believe there's going to be any way to do this through the web interface. You should probably get one of the many tools for your OS that finds and manages duplicate files. Once you clean up your Google Drive folder on your hard drive the web interface should be left in a better state.

comment Adding an archive button to emails in Inbox
Android's one up on the web interface. I can swipe-to-archive right from the Inbox list. That said, there's nothing within Gmail to do what you want. You'd need to find (or build) a third-party solution that does some JavaScript/CSS trickery.

Maybe, but also spammers and practical jokers.

Are you sure it's not your browser which has saved the information in its auto-complete data?

comment How to get a more detailed location for goo.gl URLs
What is it you're trying to do? Is this for analytics on your website? URLs don't have "locations". It's unclear what you're asking for.

comment Is there a keyboard shortcut for discarding reply drafts in Gmail?
That's as close as I've found (and why I didn't offer it as an answer). Unfortunately, the majority of keyboard shortcuts don't work when the editing field is active.

comment Is there a keyboard shortcut for discarding reply drafts in Gmail?
You can use tab to get from the edit field down into the buttons below the message. A few taps and you'll be on "Discard Draft". Then just hit Enter.

comment Someone registered me on Facebook and I am spammed with friends requests
Sending someone somewhere else to get their answer is not helpful.

comment Why can't I access my widget settings in Twitter when it works for everyone else?
For what it's worth, I can get to that page with no issue. It sounds like it might be a bug that Twitter needs to fix.

comment Google Groups new UI: See all my posts
That only seems to work if you search within a particular group. When I "search all groups" I get nothing back.

You don't need but 1 reputation point to post questions or answers here. Step 1: Read the help center. Questions about this site should be asked on Web Applications Meta.

comment How to share a Gmail mailing list
What do you mean by "mailing list". Do you mean contact group?

comment Forward Gmail via Filter to 3rd Party Email Address
No, and I wouldn't expect there ever to be. Can you imagine what would happen if you could arbitrarily select any email address to forward stuff to? No, you need to be able to show that you "control" the address being forwarded to.

comment Move Gmail subaccount to new Gmail account
It shouldn't be too bad. From what I recall, you should be able to drag-drop whole "folders".

comment How to link directly to Gmail's Spam Folder
That link will work as long as the user is logged into just one Google account or the first Google account they logged into is the one they want to use.

Then make it visible to "Only Me". Then no one else will see it.

comment Disable Google+ and enable only Gmail functionality
Thanks for the edit, but you still haven't answered the fundamental question in the previous comment: Is this for a Google Apps account or just for just for a personal account? The answers will be fundamentally different.
