Create a New Label in Gmail for Desktop

Your inbox can quickly get overwhelming. One way to better maintain your email account is to create folders (known as “labels” in Gmail) and organize your emails accordingly. Here’s how to create them in Gmail.

As we mentioned above, Gmail uses a system known as labels—it doesn’t actually have folders. While there are some subtle differences between labels and the traditional folder (such as the ability to assign an email to multiple labels), the concept is pretty much the same. Labels are used to organize emails, just like you would with folders.

Create a New Label in Gmail for Desktop

To get started, open the Gmail website in your desktop browser of choice (such as Chrome) and log in to your account. Next, click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the window.

A drop-down menu will appear. Click “See All Settings.”

Next, select the “Labels” tab.

Scroll down to the “Labels” section and click the “Create a New Label” button.

The “New Label” pop-up window will appear. Type the name of your new label into the text box under “Please enter a new label name.” Click “Create” to generate the new label.

You can also nest labels. To do that, you’ll need to have at least one label already created. Just check the box next to “Nest Label Under,” click the arrow to the right of the text box, and select your parent label from the drop-down menu.

A toast notification will appear in the bottom-left corner of the screen letting you know the label was created.

Your new label will now appear in the left-hand pane of your inbox.
