    A GMail user can keep all their important information in once place. You can use your GMail as an Internet bookmarking service to consolidate services. Follow these steps to make bookmarks with GMail.

    Step 1

    Log in to your GMail account through the Google or GMail homepage. Once you've logged on, click the "Create a filter" text link that's next to the search bar on the top of the page. This will allow you to make a filter that will serve as your bookmark function.

    Step 2

    Fill out the filter criteria form. For the "To" and "From" email fields, enter your own email addresses so that real emails don't get improperly filtered out. In the subject line, write the kind of bookmarks that will be filtered. For example, if you're bookmarking dieting sites, write something like "Diet and Nutrition." Then click "Next step."

    Step 3

    Select the correct features for the filter. The next window shows 5 check box options. Check the first option, "Skip the inbox," so you don't have your inbox cluttered with bookmarks. Then check "Apply the Label." In the down-arrow box select "New label." Enter the title of your label which, in this example, was "Diet and Nutrition."

    Step 4

    Make GMail your Internet browser's default email system. Download and install a program called "GMail Notifier." Follow the instructions of the notifier to make GMail your default email program so that when you right-click a link you send that link to GMail instead of a different email client, such as Microsoft Office or Eudora.

    Step 5

    Make your bookmark. When you find a web page you want to bookmark, right-click somewhere in the window. Select "Send This Link." Once you've installed the GMail Notifier, the link automatically gets sent to GMail. Enter your bookmark tag ("Diet and Nutrition" from this example) in the subject field and GMail will automatically sort the bookmark into its proper place.
