In May 2020, Google announced a change to Gmail's settings menu: a new Quick Settings menu carrying some frequently used options was added.

The announcement and full description are at https://gsuiteupdates.googleblog.com/2020/05/new-gmail-quick-settings-optimize-inbox.html.

Here is a screenshot of this new menu: Quick settings Gmail menu

Since I do not use any of the options on the new menu and anyway click on "See all settings" (because I need to access the 'Account and Import' settings,) how can this new Quick Settings menu be removed?

In other words, what should I do to have the original 'full' setting menu be displayed immediately after clicking the "settings" button?

Alternatively, how can I customize the Quick Settings Menu, for example by adding an 'Account and Import' settings button for faster access to these settings?

I have been searching for solutions on Google for weeks with queries like "gmail disable quick settings" or "turn off gmail quick settings", but I have not found any. In fact, no page I have encountered even discusses removing or modifying the Quick Settings menu.
