There are several ways: the messiest is to scan the Forms Controls collection:
foreach (Control c in Controls)
    {
    if (c is Label lab)
        {
        lab.Visible = true;
        }
    }
It's messy for two reasons:
1) If any of the labels are within a container (e.g. a Panel) then you need to recurse through all container Controls collection as well.
2) If there are any labels you didn't want to hide, you have to "tag" them somehow to prevent you affecting them.

A neater solution is to construct an array or List of the labels you want to work with, and use that instead of the Form Controls collection. It's a little work to set up, but it's more specific and easier to code.
