Disable Gmail Inbox Sorting

Updated October 9, 2013

I am used to the old Gmail and want to switch away from the new version.  How do you disable Gmail inbox sorting?


If you have run into an issue with viruses, I would recommend immediately installing an anti-virus program as soon as you reinstall Windows like AVG.

In order to backup Internet Explorer bookmarks, you need to open up Internet Explorer and follow these steps.

1.) In order to disable the feature, go to the Gear icon and go to Settings.

2.) Click the inbox tab and then check/uncheck any of the boxes associated with the sorted content such as Social, Promotions, and Updates.  If you do not want Gmail to sort your messages, leave all of the boxes unchecked.

3.) Click “Save Changes.”
