Here's What You Can Do With Gmail's New Right-Click Menu

Google announced recently that an update of Gmail's right-click menu functionality will land in February 2019.

Gmail in the browser is about to get even more flexible, with Google adding new right-click menu options to its email UI. Specifically, this is an update for the Gmail web application and doesn't affect mobile users who rely on the Gmail app for Android OS.

Google has, over the years, turned Gmail into an immensely powerful email tool that is among the most popular email clients in the world. Even if you have, you may not be using the resulting menu much, as it now only offers three options: archive, mark as unread, and delete.

Use search to find emails by the contact.

It is not news that Gmail has a right-click menu; what is news, however, is the fact that it has been updated so it is now actually useful. Once the change lands, it is possible to use often used actions such as reply directly from the list of emails; something that has not been possible before using the user interface, if I'm not mistaken.

Users will also be able to search for emails similar to the selected mail - such as other mails from the email's sender, or emails with the same subject line.

Windows users can click on menu key.

Those on a slower, more progressive Scheduled Release domain, meanwhile, will begin to get the new menu from February 22.
