Google refreshes right-click menu options in Gmail

Gmail is finally getting the right-click features we've always wanted

Gmail is finally getting the right-click features we've always wanted

Google announced the change on the G Suite Updates blog.

Currently, right-clicking on the Gmail web interface allows you to mark a message as read, delete or archive it.

Users don't need to anything to take advantage of the new features. And although that worked just fine, it was still a little clumsy and annoying having to click around so much.

Google has gradually been updating Gmail over the years, and the refreshed context menu provides easy access to more message options. The feature will initially roll out for G Suite users, and could eventually make its way to regular Gmail users as well. The feature will likely take a few weeks before it arrives for everyone, but it's certainly worth the wait.

It'll mean swifter access to some of the most common actions in Gmail. Best of all, you can search for emails from the same sender, or quickly search for emails with the same subject if threaded conversations are disabled. You'll also be able to use Control and Click on a Mac and the Windows key in Windows. 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. Within the month, however, these options will extend to include search options, reply/forward, snooze, mark as unread, movement options, labeling, and the option to open an email in a new tab.
