Updated: Oct 25, 2018


Google has introduced a setting to change the top grey button icons that appear when an email is selected.



If you are not a fan of icons that appear at the top of Gmail when you select an email, you can change it to descriptive text.

  • Click the Gear icon then click Settings

  • In the General tab scroll down to Button labels and select Text

  • Save your settings and the icons on the buttons will be replaced by text
