I must be blind, but I can't figure out how to view the next page of "Everything Else" mails in Gmail.

Gmail

How can I view 11-20, and so on?

    Have you tried clicking 1-10 of 21,856? Oct 12, 2013 at 22:57

    @EightDaysofMalaise Yes, actually it shows the next 50 or so, but then I run into the same problem again. I phrased the question so the screenshot would fit on here. The email I'm looking for is sometime after all of this. Oct 12, 2013 at 23:01
  • @EightDaysofMalaise Doh, I can paginate after doing that. Oct 13, 2013 at 0:25

    I've gone through this probably five times over the last couple of years, and somehow always manage to forget exactly what to do. This is the first time I was so impatient that I simply Googled the dilemma and found this post. IMHO this is a terrible setup for navigation.

On the far right of the header section, at the opposite of "Everything Else" will be an item count. It will show something similar to:

1-50 of 8580

You can click on that to then bring up a new view which will give you Previous and Next buttons for you to paginate through the rest of your email messages.

previous and next buttons after showing more

You may also notice a down arrow next to that count, which allows you to "Show more messages" and even how many messages to show at a time on screen.

drop down next to count of total emails

  • Those buttons do exist. Even if, like on mine - the buttons are completely invisible, hidden by the background. Total pants, Google. Jan 5, 2019 at 20:52

Please upvote the other answer.

Here is a clear graphic of what you should expect to happen upon clicking -

enter image description here

As shown, the entire screen-view will change and the page indicators will be at the top, not the bottom.
