Gmail Inbox Tabs (Social, Promotions) Remove

GMail launched a new Inbox layout back in May which includes tabs for sorting Social and Promotions emails. It was turned on for some of us yesterday. If you want to turn it off and go back to the old style, its pretty easy.

1. Go to the upper right-hand corner look for the little "Gear" setting icon, and select "Configure inbox"
2. Uncheck the "Social" and "Promotions" check boxes and voila! your done!

I believe this will impact your mobile device setting as well.  However, I believe you can opt to keep tabs for desktop and turn off mobile from within your mobile device gmail app.
