The first thing you need to do to make Gmail more “yours”, is to adapt the inbox to your needs. For that, you have to open the settings with the gear icon, and the Quick Settings menu will appear , where you will find the options to modify the appearance of Gmail. These are the available options:
- Density : Makes the rows of Gmail items more or less close to each other. This way, you can choose to have everything a little closer together and you can see more emails in the window, or separate it to have a cleaner look.
- Inbox type : You have various inbox layouts depending on your needs. In addition to the default, you can make items like priority items or unread emails appear at the top.
- Reading panel : You can divide the screen in two so that on one side you have the emails and on the other the content of the email you click on. You can disable this, which is the default, or choose to split the screen horizontally or vertically.
- Conversations : If you have this option activated, emails that share the same topic will be grouped together.
