Google adds new options to Gmail right-click menu

Google adds new options to Gmail right-click menu

Google is gradually rolling out the new context menu experience for Gmail users, starting with G Suite users on Rapid Release domains.

Heads up, Gmail users: Google is rolling out some handy new right-click context menu options, which can help you do more from your inbox. For users on a scheduled release, the update will kick off on February 22 and will take one to three days to reach its entire audience.

At the moment, most all of us have access to the redesigned Gmail interface on the web (and mobile, for some, else, just grab an APK file and run it).

It'll mean swifter access to some of the most common actions in Gmail. The web version application, however, doesn't really give the same ease-of-use to those who aren't comfortable with shortcuts or depend on mouse or trackpad for navigation.

Users will also be able to search for emails from a specific sender, or if the conversation view is disabled then they can search for emails sharing the same subject.

Users can now right-click (or long-press on a touchscreen) to move email between tabs, archive, mark as unread, and delete email. The latest addition is changes to the right-click menu, which now brings more useful options to the mailbox.

What do you think about the improved right click?

Windows users can click on menu key. End users can use the feature by simply right clicking on a conversation or mail to get the new options.
