In Gmail, I want to be able to see all labels on the left, without scrolling to the bottom of the list and clicking More. Mainly because the More label is usually covered up by a popup or a notification, and it's just in an inconvenient place way down there at the bottom left, and it's just an unnecessary extra click.

For example, I quite often want to navigate to All Mail and Trash and it's unnecessarily painful being under the More drop-down.

Is there a setting for this - to have all labels showing all the time, or is there some other way to achieve this goal?
