How to enable multiple stars in Gmail


Gmail has a setting to enable multiple types of stars. Not "give this email 2 stars and this other email 1 star," but "give this email a gold star and this other email a blue star." YMMV as to whether this is helpful.


  1. Open up your Gmail settings. Under the "General" tab, find the "Stars" section and click on "4 stars".

Settings - 4 stars

Settings - 4 stars - after 2. Scroll to the bottom to save the changes. 3. Then wherever you would ordinarily click to star, you can click multiple times to cycle through the different stars. Then they'll display something like this:
