How To Make Folders In Gmail

Gmail is a widely used email platform that offers a range of features to enhance your email management. One feature that can help you keep your inbox organized is the option to create folders. In Gmail, these “folders” are referred to as “labels”. In this blog post, we’ll go through the steps to create folders in Gmail, which are essentially making labels.

Step-by-Step Guide to Create Folders (Labels) in Gmail

Step 1: Log into your Gmail Account

Firstly, you need to access your Gmail account. Visit the official Gmail login page and enter your user credentials.

Step 2: Open the Gmail Settings

Once you’re logged into your Gmail account, look for a gear icon either in the top right corner of your screen. This is the ‘Settings’ button. Click on it and a drop-down menu will appear. In the drop-down menu, click on ‘See all settings’.

Step 3: Go to the Labels Tab

After clicking on ‘See all settings’, you’ll be taken to a new page with multiple tabs. Among these tabs, click on the ‘Labels’ tab.

Step 4: Create a New Label

On the ‘Labels’ page, you will see an option to ‘Create new label’ at the bottom of the page. Click on this button.

Step 5: Name Your Label

A pop-up box will appear, prompting you to name your label. Enter the name you would like to assign to the folder. If you want this label to be a sub-label of an existing label, you can check the box that says ‘Nest label under’ and select the parent label from the drop-down menu. Once you’re done, click ‘Create’.

Adding Emails to Your Label

Now that you have created your label, you can start adding emails to it. Simply open the email you want to add, click on the ‘Labels’ button (which looks like a tag), and then check the box next to the label you want to add. Click ‘Apply’ and your email will be added to that label.

Remember, in Gmail, you can add one email to multiple labels, making it a versatile tool for organizing your emails based on various categories or priorities. With these simple steps, you can keep your Gmail account organized and efficient. Happy emailing!
