How To Find Unread Messages in GMail

For the longest time, I've been wondering how I can quickly retrieve all my unread email in GMail. I tried manually clicking the "next" links to go through my large inbox. But with more than 9,500 messages now, its just impossible to find the unread ones.

I did some Google search and found the simple answer -- just type label:unread in the search box and click the "search mail" button! That's all there is to it!

According to this official GMail blog entry, here's another way to look for unread mail, specifically in your inbox -- search for "is:unread in:inbox". And to see all unread message that is not in your inbox, just use the negation operator by searching for "is:unread -in:inbox".
