How to show unread messages in Gmail (Again)

A while ago I posted a short article about how to list unread emails in Google Mail. I have found a way to also list unread emails which have a particular label. Simply enter label:unread label:XXXXX in the search bar - replacing XXXXX with the particular label applied to unread messages you wish to find. For example, if you have some messages labelled with Work, you can find any of those that are unread by searching for label:unread label:Work.

This could also be used to find those messages to which two or more labels are applied.
