    On my laptop all my Gmail emails go straight to the inbox but on my Galaxy S8 I check my Gmail and the emails are in different Folders.
    I've tried everything I know to get my Gmail on my phone to act like my desktop Gmail but I'll have messages in almost every folder besides my inbox.

    Thanks

    How are you accessing your mail on your computer? I see the same thing using the Mail app on my Mac, despite my setting otherwise on my browsers and the Gmail app on my phone/tablet.

    On your phone - slide in the menu from the left, scroll down to Settings and tap it. Select the account (if you have more than one) then tap "Inbox Categories" and deselect the additional categories. Back out to your message list and refresh it, you should now have everything in one spot.

    OK, some of the folders you see on your phone are "hidden" in the Gmail interface. See the ones with the light colored tabs?

    In my Gmail, when I hover over the folder list it will expand and become scrollable. When I reach the bottom of THAT list (I have folders for sorting) there is a "More" item with an arrow pointing down, this reveals even more folders (the ones that are "hidden". Do you see this?

    Gmail webmail or my phone? I do see it in webmail. I would like to just get rid of the long list of All Labels in my phones Gmail and stop emails from showing up in four different folders like Inbox, Priority, Important and All.
    Some folders only show one or two emails out of ten so I have to chase them all down by searching each folder if that makes sense?

    Read my last reply as I was editing as I received your reply. I also thought the settings in the Gmail webmail would sync with my phones Gmail thus looking and acting the same.

    No, the settings do not sync.

    So I'm stuck with chasing my emails down through all four folders?

    Thanks for the help.
