Default gmail next message instead of inbox

In gmail, I want to view a message, do something with it (add labels, archive, delete, etc) and instead of going back to my inbox, go to the next message. But when I hit delete, it goes back to inbox.

I do not see any settings or scripts that can be used to create this functionality in Gmail.

I think the best answer at this time is for you to suggest the feature to Gmail

You could use an IMAP client and get that functionality but that's a big change for a little feature. I'd recommend Thunderbird.

How about doing a search in:inbox (or label) is:unread then go through it with the next links and when you're done select all and delete.

The feature you requested is now available in Gmail Labs!

New in Labs: Auto-advance to the next conversation - Official Gmail Blog

Go to your Gmail settings, Select the Labs tab, and enable the auto-advance lab functionality.

After it is enabled you can tweak your auto-advance preference for going back to the older or newer conversation too.

I don't like the default setting. By default this lab starts to display older emails that have already be read. You can change the default behavior by going to the General tab and picking a different behavior once you are out of new emails :

I like the auto advance newer setting so that Gmail displays the next new email. Once you are out of unread emails it drops back to the view of the folder/label. That's better than showing me old emails that I have already seen and likely don't want to take any action on at the moment.

Nice lab, but change the default preference setting!

I enabled this setting then quickly got annoyed. I've gotten so used to Gmail dumping be back to the inbox after archiving/deleting that going to the next message annoyed me.

I would prefer if it dropped back to the current label once all of the new emails have been read.

I don't need old emails popping back up after I delete/archive the last new email.
