Gmail doesn’t use folders!

Gmail logoI often hear people say, “I don’t like Gmail because I use folders”.

Get folders out of your mind they are a bad solution.

Folders

Actually, Gmail doesn’t use folders. To help you organize your mail more effectively, Gmail usesĀ labels instead. Here’s why we think labels are better than folders: 

 

Labels Folders
A conversation can have more than one label You can only put a message in one folder
A conversation can be in several locations (Inbox, All Mail, Sent Mail, etc.) at once, making it easier to find later You have to remember where you filed a message to retrieve it
You can search conversations by label You can’t always do folder-specific searches
