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. With these new options, you can:
- Reply to, or forward, an email from the main page
- Search for emails by sender
- Search for emails by subject
- Open multiple emails in multiple new windows at the same time
- Quickly add a label or move an email
To access the menu, simply right-click a message in your inbox. You can also access it by pressing Ctrl+click on Mac keyboards or the menu key on Windows keyboards, Google wrote in a Monday blog post.
Note that the option to “find emails with this subject” will only be available if you have conversation mode turned off. Access that via the Gear icon () > Settings > Conversation view.
Google started rolling this out on Monday for Gmail users on the Rapid Release track. Everyone on that track should see the new options within 15 days. Users on the Scheduled Release track will start receiving the update on Feb. 22, but Google said it will take one to three days after that to reach everyone. The features will then be enabled by default.
Google also recently unveiled a new user interface for Gmail on mobile that makes it easier to view attachments, switch between accounts, and spot phishing emails. As part of that redesign, Google replaced the red header in the Gmail iOS and Android apps with a white search bar and swapped out the red compose button in the lower-right corner for a white one featuring a multi-colored plus sign.
