How to quickly and easily revert back to the old Gmail Look

Changes are not always accepted by the entire populace, and the same can be said about the all-new Gmail theme that Google released recently for the web client. Even if the changes were minor, the side panel with applications like Mail, Chat, Spaces, and Meet has crowded things considerably, making reading emails first thing in the morning seem more daunting.

Sure, with a few easy modifications, you can make things a bit easier on the eyes by concealing the Gmail category and label panel. However, if you don’t like other changes, like as the new light blue Compose button backdrop, which we found distracting, you can easily restore to the prior design.

In this guide, we are going to walk you through the process of reverting back to the old Gmail look. Without further ado, let’s get started.

Step 1. Head to the Gmail website and sign in with your credentials.
