If you have used Gmail for a while, you probably know that you cannot create Folders in Gmail. According to Google labels work better than folders, in real life. A mail can belong to only one folder, but it can have multiple labels and hence belong to more than one conversation.

You can easily create, delete and edit labels.

To create a label:

  1. Click the Labels drop-down menu or if you have keyboard shortcuts enabled, type l.
  2. Select Create new.
  3. Type the name of your new label and click Ok

To edit a label name:

  1. Click the Labels menu or type l with keyboard shortcuts enabled.
  2. Select Manage labels
  3. Click rename next to the label you want to edit.
  4. Enter the new label name, and click OK.

To delete a label:

  1. Click the Labels menu or type l with keyboard shortcuts enabled.
  2. Select Manage labels
  3. Click remove next to the label you want to delete.
  4. Confirm that you’d like to remove the label by clicking OK.
