Gmail enhances option to highlight windows

Gmail gains automatic message advancement option

Whoever uses Gmail a lot, must have already experienced some uncomfortable situations, such as, for example, writing a message and wanting to add part of the content of another email to it.

The standard solution would be to save the message being edited as a draft, access the message from which you want some of the content, and only then return to editing the message in question.

But, between us, there is nothing more unproductive than that, especially if we have this setback several times throughout the day.

To minimize this problem, Google announced a few days ago that it has made a significant improvement in the option to highlight windows, making it no longer the message of Loading…. The loading of the new window is now automatic.

If you are in Inbox or any other marker, you can press Shift and click on Write email or in any of the messages listed. Thus, a new window will be loaded with the message editing screen or with the message received by you. It will load like this:

In case you are already on the editing screen, you can click on the icon, available in the upper right corner of the page, so that the message you are writing is “migrated” to the new window.

But, if you are uploading a file, Gmail will display the following alert:

If you agree, you will have to attach the file again. Note that the message above will only be displayed during the upload. If the file has already been sent, it will be taken to the new window, along with all the information of the message being edited.

If you are reading a message, you can click on the option New window, also in the upper right corner. This will cause the current message to be loaded in a new window, leaving Gmail at your disposal to continue writing messages or doing whatever you want.

In addition, even with any message open, you can also open a new window with the options Answer, Answer everyone and Forward. To do this, simply press the Shift before clicking the option.

The improvement of the option can be noticed by users of Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Google regrets, but says it has failed to improve the experience that Internet Explorer users will have with the functionality.

But what about you, do you have any other tips that make multitasking easier in Gmail?
