Google Finally Expands Right-Click Options for Gmail and They’re Rolling Out Soon

Gmail right-click options have long been limited to just a few choices. But now, that’s about to change as Google integrates additional functions…

It took quite some time, but Google is finally bringing some quick access to Gmail for the web with new right-click tools. While it’s not precisely ground-breaking changes, the move does add a huge amount of convenience to the experience.

Gmail Right-Click Option for the Web coming Soon

Previously, right-clicking a message in Gmail only triggered four alternatives — Move to tab, Archive, Mark as unread, and Delete. Now, with the additions, the new list is far more expansive:

  • Reply
  • Reply All
  • Forward
  • Archive
  • Delete
  • Mark as unread
  • Snooze
  • Move to
  • Label as
  • Mute 

Plus, it also includes a quick search option for the sender’s email, along with an “Open in new window” tool:

Basically, this brings a number of functions, only previously accessible within the menus, right to the core of the interface. So, end-users don’t have to hunt to find what they need. And, it’s toggled on, by default when it goes live.

As usual, Google will first roll out the new right-click tools to G Suite admins and users. Then, it will begin to hit all Gmail accounts, starting February 22nd.
