Google has been driving me nuts for the past few days. Somehow … my Gmail account is now updated to the new layout and I can’t get the old version back ! I struggled to learn it for a few days before deciding that I just don’t have time to deal with a new learning curve right now.
Google doesn’t make it easy to revert back to old Gmail version. In fact, they make it quite hard to even search how to change back to your old version. I think I have missed many emails during this transition just because I didn’t even want to open my Gmail account for fear there would be yet another update. The old URL modification trick won’t even work to revert to older Gmail (ex. http://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=1) now. Someday, Google will not allow us to go back at all probably, but for now I have found a solution !
How To Switch back to Gmail Older version temporarily by using these simple steps:
- Log in to your Gmail account and click on the gear icon at the far right in the mail-navigation menu.
- A pop-out menu will appear. Click “Revert to the old look temporarily”.
- In the next dialogue, click the button saying “Revert to the old look temporarily” again. You’ll be redirected to the older version of Gmail.
