Buttons in your Gmail toolbar
The Gmail toolbar lets you take action on your messages. For example, you can use the buttons to delete a message or mark something as spam. The toolbar is located under the search box and above your messages.
Some buttons, like Archive, Spam, and Labels, only show up if you've selected or opened a message.
