How to customize Gmail Interface

You use Gmail.

I mean, who doesn’t, right? It’s free, it follows you everywhere, and its universally accessible – not just via web interface, but also via properly configured POP3 and IMAP email clients like Mail on the Mac, Windows Live Mail or Outlook on the PC, Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone…pretty much everywhere.  The technology available today to leverage the power of your free Gmail account is nothing short of astounding.

You like using the "native" web interface for Gmail. It has tremendous built-in power all by itself, without all the nice but confusing added "stuff" you get with stand-alone mail clients.

How to change Gmail Interface

So how do you go about changing the Gmail web interface – customizing it to make your own?

It turns out that customizing the Gmail interface is very easy to do.

First, you will want to locate the Settings link at the top right corner of your Gmail window. From there, select Themes . This will allow you to "theme" your Gmail window by using several custom-made themes. Choose one, and away you go.

The ready-made themes are all quite good. But let’s say you want even more customization – you want to tweak Gmail to look just so . Not a problem! Instead of selecting a theme, you can instead select the Choose your own colors option, after which you will be presented with a new window with several editable fields. Using this interface, you can tweak the look and feel of Gmail to your tastes with great precision and particularity.

This short video explains many of the new theming and layout options with the "new" Gmail just recently introduced.

You also have the option of using third-party plugins to your web browser of choice. For instance, if you use the Firefox web browser, you can activate it and use it to completely alter the style and appearance of not only Gmail, but also the Google Reader and Calendar applications as well.
