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

This can make it easier to find important messages as you scan your inbox.

Users can now right-click (or long-press on a touchscreen) to move email between tabs, archive, mark as unread, and delete email.

With this week's update, Gmail is adding a lot more options to the context menu, meaning you no longer need to use the top options menu.

Google said the updated menu has begun rolling out to users who are signed up to G Suite's "rapid release" track, and will be rolled out to all users from 22 February.

This option comes in handy since most of us typically open a message first and then hunt for the Reply All button.

Gmail is now adding a range of new options to its right-click context menu. You can archive it, delete it, mark it as read or snooze it. You can also move it to another folder, tag it with a label and mute it. And you can search your inbox for other messages from the same person or with the same subject.

Over the course of the next couple of weeks, all G Suite users will have access to the feature, according to a blog post by Google. Basically, anything you could do from within an email can now be done outside of the email with a right-click. Scheduled release domains (in which users get features at least a week after they're released publicly) will get the feature beginning February 22.
