Google is rolling out some interesting change to Gmail this week.
The company is revamping the context of its menu for emails within Gmail, which users will be able to use when right-clicking on emails in their inbox, and the right-click mail management menu will enable more quick access options for both Windows and Mac users.
To date, the context menu only showed basic options, requiring users to use the options menu at the top of the Gmail bar. Although that worked just fine, it was still a little clumsy and annoying having to click around so much, especially when you have to reply to 1000's of emails.
With this latest update, Gmail will add a lot more options to the context menu, so basically users will no longer need to use the top options menu. The new options in the context menu include things such as reply to, forward emails, search for emails from a specific sender, search for emails within the same subject, quickly add labels to emails, and much more. Additionally, this latest feature will allow users to open a selected email within a new window straight from the right-click menu. (FINALLY!!)
Google is gradually rolling out this new context menu experience to all its Gmail users. The feature will likely take a few weeks before it arrives for everyone, but it will certainly be worth the wait.
The new right-click menu can be seen below.
