Gmail is one of the most used email services in the world and for many, it is an essential tool for work or study. If you are one of those who receive a large number of attachments in Gmail, surely you are tired of having to download each one individually. But do not worry, since this time we will teach you how to download all the attachments in Gmail at once.

So you can download all attachments in Gmail

We have already taught you a series of tricks that you can use in Gmail such as creating filters to organize your email inbox and a method to delete all your emails at once. However, this time we will explain how to group all the files you receive in a ZIP so that you can download them all.

Now, you must bear in mind that to do this method you have to open your mail on your computer since only the desktop version of Gmail allows this function. Even from the Android app, you cannot download all the attachments at once. Once you open Gmail in your PC browser, just follow these steps:

  • First, open the email in which you received a large number of attachments.
  • The next thing is to locate the icon that allows you to download all the attached files (the one with the down arrow) that is on the right side as we indicated in the image.
  • Finally, you just have to press it and automatically all the attached files will be downloaded in ZIP format.

As you can see, this method is very easy to do and is very useful. And when you have downloaded the ZIP, all you have to do is unzip it to be able to access the files. For this, there are many programs for Android, Windows, and Mac OS that are responsible for decompression.

What if the files are spread over multiple emails?

You have likely had a long conversation in Gmail in which you received a large number of attachments in different emails. Well, there is also a way to download them all at once.
