Using the new Gmail Interface sometimes we have to be carful what toolbar icon are we clicking. To be sure, personally I hold over the mouse for the pop up text before I click any actions. If you don’t like this new way of Interface, browsing Gmail settings you will be able to switch from Icons to Text.
If you use the Google Mail, probably you have notice the new Feature Priority Inbox. By clicking on the "+" or "–" button you can add or remove "Priority" to your emails and next time that you receive a new mail from those account, this email will be on the top and highlighted. Gmail can identify also by automatic the email that’s important to you by scanning keywords that appears frequently.
A new way to introduce the new features for Gmail. While opening the mail box this morning I get this popup window. Gmail’s labeling toolkit now have a new location and hiding label. Added also the drag and drop options. Let’s have a closer look:
1) New location for labels
You’ll notice your labels in a new location on the left of your inbox (or on the right, for those of you using the Arabic, Hebrew, or Urdu versions of Gmail). Instead of having their own section, your labels are now above your chat list, grouped together with Inbox, Drafts, Chats and other system labels.
