Google announced on Monday that it will be adding more options to the right-click menu in Gmail. Currently, the right-click function in Gmail offers a limited range of actions for emails: archive, mark as read/unread or delete, according to Tech Crunch

The new options will offer more flexibility within the application, saving users from rummaging through each email for basic actions. The fully featured right-click menu will allow users to do most of the things that Gmail’s top bar menu offers, and as expected, the provider will be throwing in a few extra features.

New right-click will allow users to reply to, forward, search for all emails from a sender or with the same subject and open multiple emails at the same time. Additional features by the software giant include adding labels to emails, muting email trails and using Gmail’s snooze feature--all from the right-click menu.

Google has started to roll out the feature to G Suite users on Monday, while free users can expect the new features to pop up on Feb. 22. (geo/wng)
