Google Mail: Search your Google Mail inbox for a person/message/or subject

I frequently get asked....
In Outlook I used to be able to sort by the "from" to find a message by a particular person.  How do I do that in Gmail?

Bad News: You can't sort by the from in Google Mail
Good News: You CAN search by the from in Google Mail.  Here is how...

Step 1: While in your inbox, click on the triangle in search bar at the top of the screen.

Step 2: In the From box, type the email address for the person you are searching for.
Step 3: Click the Blue magnifying class.

Step 4: You will now see all your emails that particular person sent you.

Note: You can also search by To, Subject, Has the Words, and Doesn't Have.

Happy Searching!
