Gmail offers a bunch of keyboard shortcuts to make it easier to compose, draft and send emails. The web version application, however, doesn’t really give the same ease-of-use to those who aren’t comfortable with shortcuts or depend on mouse or trackpad for navigation. Well, this is changing with the latest Gmail update.
Gmail is now adding a range of new options to its right-click context menu. Going forward Gmail users can right click on an email to reply, forward, and even find mails with the subject. The latest update is already being rolled out to users and should be available to all by end of this month. Note the updated right-click context menu will be switched on by default.
