Here’s a quick overview of how to mark prior messages as read, delete prior messages and jump to the top and bottom of your message list while using a BlackBerry Q10 smartphone.
Note: Depending on how your email account is set up, messages that are removed from your smartphone as a result of using the Delete Prior option will also be removed from your mailbox.
Step One – While viewing the Hub, tap and hold on a date banner and a menu will appear on the right.
Step Two – Select your desired option, or tap and drag the area indicated by the green arrow to expand this menu as per the second screenshot.
If you expand the menu you’ll also notice shortcut keys appear next to the following options:
- Next – N (You can also use P for Previous)
- To Top – T
- To Bottom B
- Delete Prior – Del
Don’t forget to take advantage of the context menu in the bottom left corner in case you’d like to manage a specific account as well! Combined with shortcuts, these features can really help you manage a lot of messages quickly. To learn more about your device as well more shortcuts, make sure you check out the Help app as well!
