Archiving lets you tidy up your inbox by removing messages from your view without deleting them. It's like moving something into an out-of-the-way filing cabinet for safekeeping, rather than putting it in the trash can. Any message you've archived can be found by searching for All Mail in the dropdown search menu, or by clicking on the All Mail label on the left side of your Gmail page. You can also find a message you've archived by clicking on any other labels you've applied to it or by searching for it. To search the archive, select All Mail from the search dropdown menu or enter label:all in the main search box. When someone responds to a message you've archived, the conversation containing that message will reappear in your inbox.

All Mail is your archive, a storage place for all the mail you've ever sent or received, but have not deleted.
You can see a list of archived messages by clicking All Mail. If the All Mail link is not visible by default in your inbox, click on the More dropdown menu under your Labels list to visualize it. Archived messages are also available by searching, and under any assigned labels.

You also can archive mail after you open it -- just click Archive along the top of the inbox.
