New Gmail tabs tutorial

Gmail inbox has come up with new feature.We help you to travel along the new feature

See below for our in-depth explanation of the new default tabs, how to personalize the tabs to suit you and  if really dislike the new look — how to disable them completely?.

Earlier Gmail:

We use to get lots of mail from our friends,family,deals and offer,subscription etc.
"All of these emails can compete for our attention and make it harder to focus on the things we need to get done."
"Sometimes it feels like our inbox's are controlling us, rather than the other way around."

To remedy inbox fatigue, G mail divided our inbox's into logical "tabs" that separate our incoming mail into categories. Click each tab heading for a quick look at what's new.

New Tabs:

  • Primary: Messages from friends and family, as well as any other messages that don't appear in other tabs.
  • Promotions: Your deals, offers and other promotional emails.
  • Social Messages: From social networks, media-sharing sites, online dating services, gaming platforms and other social websites.
  • Updates: Notifications such as confirmations, receipts, bills and statements.
  • Forums: Messages from online groups, discussion boards and mailing lists.

Customization Options:

When the new inbox rolls out to you, it implements default tabs — ours contained "Primary," "Social" and "Promotions."
You can edit the tabs to show categories you'd like. To do this, click on the "+" sign to the right of your new tabs to bring up a pop-up menu.
From here, check or uncheck boxes next to the tabs you want in your inbox. Click "Save" to set up any changes you've made.

Moving Emails to Different Tabs:

Once you've grabbed the tabs you want, you can "teach" Gmail to automatically send emails from certain senders into particular tabs.
To do this, right-click on an email that has been filed under the incorrect tab heading. Hover over the "Move to tab" option that appears in the pop-up box, and select the correct tab.
Alternatively, you can drag and drop messages to another tab.
Gmail will then ask you if you want it to "Do this for future messages from [email@example.com]?" Click "yes" and suture mails from that address will auto-filter into your preferred tab.

Disabling Tabs:

If you dislike the new tabs functionality and want to return to the traditional inbox layout, click the "+" icon to the right of the tab heading, uncheck every tab box (apart from "Primary" which is a default) and your inbox will revert to the old design.

To reinstate tabs at any time, click the cog settings button and choose "Configure inbox" to bring them back.
