Yesterday, Google announced a new kind of inbox that automatically sorts your emails into categories. If you’ve tried it and it’s not your thing, here’s how to restore the old version.
If you want to get the old view back, here’s what to do:
- Head to Gmail’s settings and go to the Inbox tab.
- Next to “Inbox type,” open the drop down and select any option besides “Default.”
- Rearrange your inbox sections as you desire.
No matter which option you choose, you’ll get the old segmented inbox back. From there you can choose how many/which sections you want. You will lose the sorted tabs, though: for now, it seems you can only use one type of inbox or the other.
