Gmail's right-click menu just got a ton of new options

Have you ever tried right-clicking on a message in your Gmail inbox? Even if you have, you may not be using the resulting menu much, as it currently only offers three options: archive, mark as unread, and delete.

But this is changing in a big way. Google announced on Monday that it's added a lot more functionality into Gmail's right click menu.

The new Gmail right click menu will have a total of 12 options: reply, reply all, forward, archive, delete, mark as unread, snooze, move to, label as, mute, find emails from same sender, and open in new window. Additionally, if conversation view is turned off, you'll also be able to search for all emails with the same subject.

For someone whose workflow includes a lot of right clicking, this could be very useful, as Google has crammed pretty much everything you might need into that menu. Say you want to mass-move several emails into a certain category, or open two emails in new windows for a side-by-side comparison — it's now one right-click away.

Of course, you already have all those options, in Gmail's top menu (some are hidden behind the additional, three-dot menu, though) and you can also access them via keyboard shortcuts. But if you're the right-clicking type, the new menu will probably be preferable.

The new feature will be on by default and has started rolling out to G Suite users on Monday — the rollout is gradual, so don't worry if you're not seeing it yet. It's unclear when the feature will come to all Gmail users; we've asked Google and will update this article when we hear from them.
