"Mark All Read" at top of inbox

"Mark All Read" at top of inbox

Short, concise description of the idea
Include a "Mark All Read" button at the top of the message inbox, as there is on the bottom.

Full description of the idea
Since new messages in the inbox are automatically expanded, I can read them there all at once, and often don't take any other action on them. However, in order to mark multiple messages as read with a single click, I have to scroll down to the bottom of my inbox. This is a minor issue but still a small annoyance each time I visit the message center.

It's mostly an issue of efficient UI. I see a lot of suggestions about Scrapbook's structure and interface, but not as many about the message center, even though I imagine the message center layout would be significantly easier to adjust.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Reduces unnecessary scrolling
  • Makes using the message center more efficient and convenient
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Would require minor coding, I suppose, although nothing much that I can see.
