The Gmail redesign

Here are some good suggestions for modifying Gmail’s ugly new interface when the option to return to “Classic Gmail” is no longer available. The suggestion to turn off hovering is especially helpful.

Another suggestion, which I found in a comment on this (not especially helpful) piece: clicking on the stacked lines in the upper left corner collapses the main menu (the left column) and makes for a more attractive layout.

Some Gmail accounts still have the “Go back to Classic Gmail“ option available from the Settings menu. But the option is being phased out. There’ll be no going back.

On the PC you can make the appearance collapse. A little cleaner. I hope they are not going the way of Yahoo and taken out the "streamliness" of the page.

Any browser on any device should let you collapse the menu on the left. (I hope.)

My main account went to the new look today, after a one-week warning. So I had to look up this post again to figure out what to do.
