For instance, you'll be able to choose Reply, Reply all, or Forward from the right-click menu, as well as Archive, Delete, Mark as unread, and Snooze.

Good news for Gmail users: Google team has made a decision to implement a shortcut menu that can be activated by right clicking on an incoming email. Google seems to have realized as much, and it's now expanding the right-click menu to include several other items.

It's a small change, but very welcomed. It's unclear when the feature will come to all Gmail users; we've asked Google and will update this article when we hear from them. Should all go well, it'll likely hit regular Gmail accounts shortly after.

Google is rolling out an interesting change to Gmail this week.

Mexico's 'El Chapo' found guilty in US drug trial
The 61-year-old Guzman broke out of Mexican prisons twice before he was finally recaptured and extradited to the U.S. in 2017. Guzman's wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, leaves Brooklyn federal court on January 17 after attending the trial.

The update means that it is now possible to perform more actions directly from the inbox. The web version application, however, doesn't really give the same ease-of-use to those who aren't comfortable with shortcuts or depend on mouse or trackpad for navigation. Additionally, if conversation view is turned off, you'll also be able to search for all emails with the same subject.

It is about time that Google makes the right-click menu more useful on Gmail.

Gmail users can open the context menu using a right-click, the Menu-key on Windows keyboards, or Ctrl-click on Mac OS X devices.

Those on a slower, more progressive Scheduled Release domain, meanwhile, will begin to get the new menu from February 22.
