Don’t like the look of the new Gmail? Use the “Compact” setting!

The look of the new Gmail hasn’t been well received by many.  If you want to use the new Gmail, but have the look of the old Gmail, here’s what to do….

1.  click on the “gear” icon (not the tiny one in the very upper right…there’s a larger one below that)
2.  click on “compact

*it’s not exactly the same as before, but close enough…and actually, the new look is growing on me…feels cleaner.
*note:  for now, you also have the option of clicking on “revert to the old look temporarily”, but as this indicates, it’s just temporary.  you’re going to get shifted over to the new gmail at some point whether you like it or not.

    There isn’t enough contrast between the new and read mail. Not good. Want the old back or a new and improved look. Can anyone do anything about this.
