ICYDK: How to Remove The New Gmail Inbox Tabs

You may have already seen or heard that Gmail is rolling out some new features and they’re starting to automatically filter your email messages for you (this also applies if you use Google Apps for your business email address!).  

You might not see any changes in your email yet as Google is rolling them out to users overtime. But make no mistake -- sooner or later your inbox is gonna look and behave VERY differently...

Unless you take charge.

Many of my friends and family have expressed irritation and asked for a quick fix.

Well, it involves a little elbow grease…actually it doesn’t. You’ve just gotta get a little deeper than your inbox.

To completely remove these new tabs:

1. Go to the Settings box in the upper right hand corner of your inbox and select "Settings."

2. Click on the "Inbox" tab and unselect all categories but "Primary" (don't forget to save your changes).

3. That’s it! You did it!
