Using Chrome on an Amazon Fire tablet, today I find Gmail changed to a simplified version where the initial screen is a full-width inbox message list and little more. How can I revert it to the previous version?

Neither of the other options

do that. Both revert to even more primitive HTML versions.

Follow the Opt-out instructions from Learn about the new integrated Gmail layout:

Opt out of the new view

  1. At the top right, click Settings
  2. Under “Quick settings,” click Go back to the original Gmail view.
  3. In the new window, click Reload.
  • "At the top right, click Settings" None is present.

  • Settings is the name of the gear icon (see the linked help article) Commented Jul 27, 2022 at 23:41
  • "Settings is the name of the gear icon" Not on the version in question. "(see the linked help article)" That's not the version in question. It doesn't remotely resemble my description. Note that the screenshot shows the version in question is "Mobile".
