Dear PC Doctor:

I use Gmail, and it recently automatically updated. I think I’m getting used to everything, except the fact that I now can only see my folders by hovering the mouse over them. I don’t like it. I want see my folders all the time, and I don’t want things dancing around on the screen when I move my mouse. Is there a way to make the folders stay put and always be visible?

Thank you,

Stationary Stacey

Dear Stacey:

Log in to your Gmail account. From your inbox view, look for 3 horizontal lines on the far upper left of your screen. Click on them. Voila! All of your folders (which Gmail calls “labels,”) will now be visible. This change will ‘stick’ for all subsequent log ins unless you click the horizontal lines again to hides your labels.

For more Gmail tips, click the cog image on the far upper right of your screen and choose “Help.” If you browse all of the help articles, one is about everything that is new in Gmail.

Until next time,
Happy Computing!
