Google offers a lot of apps that will make a person’s life much easier, the Google Mail Checker is one of them. It’s a little envelop on the right side of the address bar. It shows the number of unread messages on your desktop, so one doesn’t have to open his mailbox to check for messages. By a simple click on the icon, the inbox opens automatically.
If you are using the Google Chrome web browser, it is very simple to enable it. This link takes you immediately to the Google Mail Checker in the Google web store where you can download this app. In the right corner of your screen, there’s a blue button that says ‘free’. Click on it to download the application. The following screen appears on your desktop.
This is Chrome asking for security reasons if you want to confirm that you want to install this extension. Click on ‘Add’ and a few seconds later, the mail checker will appear on the right side of the address bar.
The Google web store now shows you a couple of suggestions of other apps you can install. There’s the Google Mail Multi-Account Checker, to manage multiple accounts at once.
The Checker Plus for Gmail is also an interesting app, it’s a lot more advanced than the Google Mail Checker. With this application it’s also possible to manage multiple accounts, and on top of that it also shows live notifications with the sender and the subject of the message. The notifications slides into your screen and you can immediately respond or click ‘mark as read’.
All these applications will help you to keep track of all your e-mail traffic and don’t forget to reply to important messages.
If you aren’t satisfied with this app en you want to remove it again, there are a few steps you have to follow. Open the control panel and click on ‘uninstall a program’ under ‘programs’. Select the Google Gmail Notifier and click on ‘uninstall’.
