comment GMAIL - no label found in Allmail
You've never noticed the "archive" button? I really suggest you have a look at the Gmail support center and familiarize yourself with some of the basic features.

comment Google groups new topic button - where the heck is it?
Does the group allow posting from the Web? I seem to recall that was a setting one could set for a group. In such case you would need to send email to the group address to start a new topic.

comment How to setup Shared Google Calendar Notifications upon Event Creation
Unfortunately, none of the ingredients for IFTTT's Google Calendar "Add New Event" trigger includes the person creating the event. You might want to reach out to IFTTT and suggest it as an enhancement.

comment Keyboard shortcut for indenting bulleted list in Gmail message editor with Mac
Unfortunately, even the "Custom Keyboard Shortcuts" Lab doesn't have options to change the keys for indent.

Your best bet is probably to change your Amazon password.

Questions about Web browser functionality belong on Super User.

comment Import a CSV file to Google Spreadsheets
@Jacob: sure. Different languages use different syntax.

comment Is there any way to make GMail (or a suitable alernative) automatically delete out-of-office replies from cc addresses?
Gmail filters aren't that complex. Certainly a filter can't act on an incoming message based on information in the message that prompted the reply; only on the information in the incoming message.

comment YouTube interface broken on Chrome
What version of Chrome? What OS? What version of Firefox? Have you cleared your browser cache? This question seems to be more about an issue with the browser, which would be better off on Super User.

comment Auto reply to specific emails from txt.voice.google.com
Are you sure the "Send canned response" action on the filter doesn't work? It seems to work fine on my tests. Perhaps the filter needs to be on the Gmail account for the original number.

comment Can Cognito Forms be used without a website?
You should add that as an answer for future readers with the same question. Comments aren't designed to stay around for the long-term.

comment Import a CSV file to Google Spreadsheets
Why not do actual carriage returns (CHR(13)) and or line feed characters (CHR(10))? I've never worked with a CSV file that used \r to put in newlines.

comment How do I open the Google Drive folder of the file I am editing?
Yeah, your best bet might be the "Move to Folder" tool, because it gives you the name of the current folder which also happens to be a link. Unfortunately it opens the folder in a new tab. It might be better than nothing, though.

comment I want to assign my contacts to different FROM accounts
I'm afraid that this isn't really possible with Gmail itself. You might be able to find this sort of functionality in a third-party email client (like Thunderbird), but even then I'm not 100% sure you will be able to do this.
