Switch to labels from folders

In your previous mail program, you might have stored emails you want to keep in folders. In Gmail, you use labels to categorize your emails. Labels are like folders, but with a twist: you can apply multiple labels to a message, then later find the message by looking in any of its labels.

You can also:

  • Open a label on the left of your Gmail window to see all emails with that label (just like you used to open a folder).

  • Nest labels within labels, just like you did with folders.

  • Search for all emails with a label.

  • See labels on emails in your inbox to quickly identify different types of messages.
