Enable/Disable Gmail new Compose feature

Written by Tushar. Posted in Tips & Tricks

Gmail new Compose feature was introduced back in last week of October 2012. By now it is available to all users across. Many have used the new compose and find it useful, while many have found it not. Google has provided an option to switch back to old compose method. Now I am going to help to to “enable” it, if you haven’t used. Also if you found it not worthy then I am going to show you how to disable it. Follow the instructions below.

  • Now you have successfully disable your new compose and switch back to old compose.

The new compose feature just pops up like chat and its faster. Being similar to chat window, you can type multiple emails at a time without having to close the other saving it as draft.

It has every feature that is available in the older version. Only thing is that new compose is inline just like the chat.
