So far, I have used so many free (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail) and paid (Outlook Web Access, Zimbra) email services and majorly I continued using Hotmail over the years and Gmail sometime as I had created Blogs and were using various Gmail services.
Till Today's I didn't like Gmail's email interface As the Gmail look is not good as Hotmail.
For a common user it might be difficult to navigate options in Gmail, even I had faced difficulties in finding Forward/Reply options etc.
It's today until I thought of giving a complete new look to my Gmail email a/c and after changing few things, Gmail looks much better than standard Gmail look (interface). A complete make over for Gmail email account. I am sharing here what I did to make Gmail look better and enhanced to make your Gmail experience better.
Here is what I did to make Gmail interface cool and easy to navigate.
1. Compact View: Click a wheel icon in upper right hand corner and then click 'Compact' option under display density.
2. Change Theme Color: Click a wheel icon in upper right hand corner and then click 'Settings'.
Now select 'Themes' from various options listed one by another in a raw.
In color themes, click 'Dusk' (A blue color type theme).
3. Enable Preview Pane: Click a wheel icon in upper right hand corner and then click 'Settings'.
Now select 'Labs' from various options listed one by another in a raw.
In labs list, scroll down to find 'Preview Pane' lab and click 'Enable' next to it and then scroll down and then click 'Save Changes' button at the bottom. Now wait for Gmail to re-load and then click icon before wheel icon and then click 'Vertical Split'.
4. Install Gmail Ad Remover: First click here to install Greasemonkey add-on and then click here to access Gmail Ad Remover and then click Install button in upper right hand corner.Once both Greasemonkey and Gmail Ad remover installed, refresh your Gmail page and Ad will be gone.
Once you make all above mentioned changes you will see a complete new Gmail look, see above screen-shot (Sample) to know how know my Gmail account looks like.
