I have a lot of rules that route unread emails to labels. I'd like to not let them distract me when I want to process the Inbox.

The solution I ended up with is from this site.

  1. Install the "Stylish" Chrome/Firefox plugin
  2. Install the "Gmail autohide sidebar" style

    Small note that this style does not work well with the "new" (2018) GMail style. Autohiding the sidebar now exists as a "feature" within GMail: "click on the three horizontal lines in the top left corner and it will hide the left hand side bar" - source Commented Sep 12, 2018 at 13:27
