How to Disable Gmail’s Social and Promotions Tabs

It has been seen that some people are unhappy by seeing Social and Promotions Tabs in their Gmail inbox. Because they were using Gmail from a long time and were familiar with its all features and functions very well. But after seeing these strange tabs they are feeling uncomfortable.

Alike all web services, Gmail also wants to provide some special features for the users and that’s why, Gmail updated gmail inbox (addition of new tabs) on May 29th. Some users like that but some don’t also. I personally feel that Gmail tired to provide a nice feature for us. And reasons to like this new Gmail inbox is that it automatically arranges and nicely categorizes emails according to different subject and content of emails. 

New Tabs introduced by Gmail are Social, Promotions, Updates and Forums, and also Primary tab. If you like to use your Gmail account with one and only Primary tab then you can easily disable these other Tabs (Social/Promotions).
