Creating Labels in Gmail


We all do it. We try to save every email we receive “just in case” we need it some day. Some of us just do it better than others. The best way to organize (and be able to easily find things later) is to create labels. Think of labels as “folders” in Gmail (they are really the same thing). Creating labels is easy. There are 2 ways they can be created. Just follow these simple steps.
