After my first toying around with the new Gmail compose I clicked on the button that said 'I want to keep using the old compose' or something similar with the same meaning.

Now I want to try it again, but I don't find any option to reactivate the new Gmail compose.

How do I do it?

When you deactivated the new compose feature, your Gmail should have refreshed.

To get it back, just click Compose, and you should see a message at the top that says "Try out the new compose experience" Clicking this will refresh the page again with the new compose feature enabled.

Nope, there's no link to re-enable it. – David Conrad Apr 7 '13 at 23:58
Sorry, I thought I would get the option on Reply as well. It is only if you click Compose. Got it now. – David Conrad Apr 7 '13 at 23:59
