Gmail tip: Searching only for attachments Because I've seen people many times searching in Gmail when what they're looking for is an attachment. Often you search for something like "ProjectX" and find a huge thread full of emails without that one document attachment you're looking for.

Add to your normal search:


and it will only find emails with an attachment. See example screenshot on the right.
