    Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Gmail application.

    We want to press down on "Manage labels".
    They're called labels but are sometimes referred to as 'categories' as well. If we press down on this section, we'll see all of our different labels or folders. We can edit each folder or label. Some labels will already be synced, so they will say "Sync" underneath of the titles.
