Google finally making Gmail's right-click menu more useful

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

New options will include reply, reply all, forward, moving to labels, labeling without moving, muting, finding emails from the same person, and more. These features will still be available on the updated menu.

Thanks to this solution, just to give an example, who prepares invoices can with an app could fill automatically information and product numbers. For control freaks, the new menu is a godsend and makes the web-based email tool more like using a desktop email client. Arguably even more useful, there'll be a shortcut for searches there, too. If you're one of those people, we've got good news - Google is rolling out a small but significant update that should help you deal with email a bit quicker.

The update means that it is now possible to perform more actions directly from the inbox.

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. Right now, the only options provided are delete, archive, mark as unread, and move to tab. It'll also work with the menu key on Windows keyboards. Users on the Scheduled Release track will start receiving the update on February 22, but Google said it will take one to three days after that to reach everyone.
