Gmail revert to Classic Gmail Look

Gmail automatically makes users to switch to new Google interface. But people like me are not comfortable with the new dull look of Gmail. Its kind of pain for the eyes.

If you are like me you can revert to old Gmail, Classic look easily

1. On the right side of your Gmail page click the gear icon

2. Then click Revert to “Old look temporarily”


3. Gmail will display a message asking you why you want to switch to Old look. You can tell them why if you wish to OR switch back simply


4.Now your old Gmail will load again and you can enjoy it.

5. If you again want to switch to New Look, you can click the link at the right bottom of the screen


Hope this helps you…

  1. Thank YOU so much. The new gmail is awful! All of my files (Inbox, Sent, etc…) were overlapping and I could not click on anything other than Inbox. So, thank you very much! I wish they would let me keep the older version, because it sure works a lot better.

  2. Dear Sirs,

    I found very nice to have a new gmail look.

    However, I am experiecing a lot of problem to access to my attachments. In fact I can see that one or more documents were attached, but I can not open them.

    Hence, I would like to return to my classic gamil look.

    Sincerely yours,


  3. Dear Sirs,

    I need to return to my classic old version, since in this PC I am not able to open any attachment.

    Sincerely yours,

  4. I too have lost the option of returning to the old look from the drop box at the gear icon. Is there some other way to get back the familiar old look that was completely functional and didn’t need improvement?

  5. The “revert to old look temporarily” option is now missing, and the new interface is unusable on any computer I have access to. I can’t get into my email, this is frustrating!
