Login to gmail.
Once you login you will see primary, social and promotions tabs at the top of your screen. Click on the plus sign tab next to them.
A box will come up with the list of tabs.
Notice that the primary, social and promotion boxes are checked. The â€˜include starred messages in primaryâ€™ box will also be checked.
From here you can uncheck tabs you no longer want. If you still want tabs, leave the â€˜include starred messages in Primaryâ€™ box checked. Then go into your promotions tab and star emails that you want sent to your primary box.
You can also drag an email from your promotions tab to your primary tab. When you do this, a message will come up asking if you want to move all of the messages from that sender to your primary inbox. Click yes.
