How to delete a Folder/Label in Gmail
To edit labels, go to the settings page by clicking the Settings button, then choose ‘Labels’ from the drop-down menu. The system labels in this top portion are Gmail’s internally assigned names for things. You can pick which of these labels to display or hide from the label list. On every Gmail webpage, you’ll find a label list on the left side.
Simply delete the one you don’t want. Click on the label, then go over to the right and click Delete. All gone!
When you delete a label, it removes the “view” from that inbox, but the message(s) remain in All Mail. The only thing that happens when you Archive a message is that the Inbox label is removed.
Click the gear in the upper-right corner and choose “Settings.” Select the Labels option from the drop-down menu. Next to the folder you want to display or hide, choose whether it should be shown or hidden using the Show link or Hide link.
In other email programs, you may have organized your emails in folders. Gmail uses labels to organize your messages. Labels are similar to folders, but they have a twist: you can apply several labels to an email and later search for it by clicking any of its labels from the left panel.
Open the Gmail app on your iPhone or iPad and tap Menu Settings. Select the label you wish to change/remove from your list.
