If you use Gmail, you might be aware…
It’s the not-so-subtle change they recently made to their interface.
The new tabs in your inbox (“Primary,” “Promotions,” “Updates,” etc.) are not only a disruption to our own organization styles, but also a possible blockade to receiving important emails.
For example, under the new system, my emails would probably arrive in your “Updates” tab.
Of course, if you like this system, you don’t have to change it. Just look for my emails in the “Updates” tab.
Or, to make sure you don’t miss them, just drag them from “Updates” to “Primary.” Then, future emails should show up in your “Primary” tab.
But if you would like to get rid of this system and go back to normal just follow these 3 easy steps courtesy of the New Organizing Institute:
- Go to Settings and click “Configure Inbox.”
- Uncheck all the new tabs that appeared like magic in your inbox.
- Click “Save.”
