Here’s All the Options In Gmail’s New Right-Click Menu
It looks like the web version of Gmail is getting a lot more useful, thanks to new additions to the context menu you access by right-clicking on your mouse or touchpad.Credit: ShutterstockThis is a big improvement over the lame three right-click options Gmail users have had: archive, mark as unread, and delete.
The new features will reach paid Gsuite users first. The gradual rollout yesterday (February 11) for companies that have the “rapid release” selected in their upgrade options, while scheduled release domains rollout will start on February 22.
There’s no word yet about when the update will free gmail.com users. The new options include the following:
Reply or forward an email, so you don’t have to click on the message before taking these actions.
This option comes in handy since most of us typically open a message first and then hunt for the Reply All button.
Find emails from sender
Search for all emails from a sender, which is particularly useful to quickly access your history with that person.
If conversation view is turned off (see image below), you will be able to search for all emails with the same subject for quick access to the thread’s history.
Open in new window
Open multiple emails in multiple new windows at the same time, which is very useful in case you want to serially take care of different subjects without having to go back and forth.
And perhaps the most useful for those obsessed with mail classification: add a label or move an email, individually or in bulk.
Mark as Unread
This can make it easier to find important messages as you scan your inbox.
With the snooze option you can temporarily remove items from your inbox until you need them later. You can decide the timeframe, whether it's tomorrow or next week. And if you snooze something by accident of just need to see it, there's a Snoozed option under the Menu.
