Are you frustrated with the new Gmail inbox with category tabs? I was until I discovered the minor setting that changes it back and I wanted to share it with you. I have multiple email addresses that all use Gmail as the provider. One of my boxes had categories and the other didn’t. One day I compared their settings to see why and I found the check boxes that make all the difference.
Navigate to Settings (gear in the upper right hand corner #1)
In the upper menu, choose Inbox (#2)
Deselect that categories you don’t want (basically uncheck everything but Primary #3)
Make sure you save these new settings at the bottom
Voila! You are back to the way your Gmail inbox used to look.
