How to Use Gmail Labels as Folders?

Many of the internet users(including my friends) opt for Yahoo mail because it contains Folders.

Actually Gmail Labels provides more functionality than Yahoo Mails Folders. Gmail allows you to put emails into Labels or both Inbox and Label.

Here is how you can set Labels as Folders:

  • Go Under Settings Tab.
  • Choose Labels Tab and Create a New Label ( I used Google).

  • Now go under Filter Tab and Click on Create a filter

  • Choose your Filter criteria(I choose Has the Words :Google)
  • Click on Next.
  • Mark the BoxSkip the Inbox(Archive it) and Apply the Label Google

You can also take mails already in your Inbox to Label with criteria you have mentioned above.

Now your Labels are not just labels but are Folders too.
