How many times you have spent your time selecting each message one by one?

It is very hard sometimes to click on each check box to select a group of messages. This is a common problem with all the web based emails. But Gmail (Google mail) offers a simple feature to defeat this obstacle.

Click the check box of top message and click the check box of the bottom message holding “Shift” key, you will see all the messages selected.

So if you want to select about 3 or more continuous messages, stop clicking each check boxes, Simply hold the shift key and click the top and bottom check boxes of the messages.
