Gmail’s right-click menu is actually going to be useful going forward

Share

Gmail has always offered a number of ways to interact with your mail. You can use the web app, or an app on your phone. The new right-click menu options will give you the ability to manage a message from its folder without having to open it or look for the command you want to run. You can archive it, delete it, mark it as read or snooze it.

Once the update has made its way to your account, you can access it with a right-click, control+click on a Mac keyboard, or by clicking the menu key on Windows keyboards. Following the update users will also be able to open multiple emails in new windows simultaneously, as well as moving emails and adding labels through the same redesigned context menu.

The new options are gradually rolling out to G Suite users, starting with rapid release domains (in which users get new features as soon as they're released to the public) on Monday.

What do you think about the improved right click? Everyone on that track should see the new options within 15 days.

Now You: Do you use the Gmail web interface? The redesign started off as an optional feature, but Google made it clear that all users would eventually be migrated over to this new redesign. While Google has not specifically mentioned when these features will roll out to general users, we predict it to happen in the coming weeks, as has been the norm.
