How To Restore The Classic Gmail

The Google services Gmail, Chat, Spaces, and Meet are more integrated thanks to the new design. Users can easily switch between the services with only one click thanks to the redesigned left sidebar, which provides entry points. Each symbol enables notification boxes that immediately draw attention to updated content. Among other things, the new design permits hiding the primary Gmail sidebar.


The new Gmail look that Google will roll out in 2022 may not be to everyone’s taste. Although the new design is currently optional, many Gmail web interface users should see a trial option. Next month, the design will be turned on by default.


To restore the classic Gmail interface, do the following:

  1. If you haven’t already, go to the main Gmail page.
  2. Click the cogwheel icon in the top right corner to activate it. It is located there to the left of the question mark icon.
  3. When the menu appears, click the link that says “Go back to the original Gmail view.”
  4. The page loads up with a form. Reload will return you to the default display. If you want to go back, you can type a justification, but it’s not required.
  5. The old view is reinstated after the Gmail page has completely reloaded.


Note: The 2022 design of Gmail will be activated automatically in the future, and if Google removes the option from the menu, there is no way to revert.

Now You: Which design do you like? Classic or 2022 design?
