    Select all for what? What are you trying to do? If your trying to delete the inbox no there is not but spam n trash you can empty box.

    From inbox to Archive, it seems I have to open them one by one and archive one by one.

    Ok so this worked on mine I selected what I wanted to archive then at the top there is a folder icon with an arrow on it and that archived them all. The icon is to the left of the trashcan

    I am aware of that icon but couldn't find out how to actually select as the tick box had gone.

    But I found out now ok, just tap the profile icon on each message and away you go. :)

    I've been crying about it for a few years. Gmail refuses to put a select all option. That's why I use K-9

    Quite agree it is silly as the Select All is on desktop.

    I also use k-9 for my other emails I like that too as you can have separate icons for each email addy. Brilliant
