New Gmail Compose

I started using the new Gmail Compose last week. It’s closer to what I’m used to seeing on my phone so it didn’t take much to get used to, but I do kind of miss having it expand to my whole window.

I’m one of those people who expands all windows when using them – I like them to take up the entire screen. Has anyone found a way to make that happen?


  1. Hit the little “pop out” arrow (between the minimize dash and the “x” for closing), then hit the maximize window icon?

  2. If you pop the window out, you can resize it (just like with chat windows.)

  3. Thanks both of you! I’m not sure how I feel about that – why do I need another window open to write an email … I’m one of those people who likes as few things open as possible 🙂

  4. I’m with you on that–I want as few windows open as possible, and as few clicks as possible!
