I was organising messages in my GMail account, I had a few messages selected (whilst in a sub-folder) and I accidentally clicked Remove Label and now they are gone!

Now I know they are still somewhere in my account but I just can't find them.

Is there any way of getting them back?

Yes! Use


in your search field. Google has a help page for that: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7190?hl=en

You'll probably see labeled messages as well, refer to the note on the bottom.

Messages that have or don't have a label


Example: has:nouserlabels

Note: Labels are only added to a message, and not an entire conversation.
