How to get Full-Screen Compose in GMail

The new Gmail Inbox and compose has been launched now to most users across the world. With the new Gmail Inbox, all your mail can be categorized and displayed under various tabs - we have already written about it and you can view it here. With the Gmail compose however, when you want to write an email. The window is a small opo-up on hte left-hand corner of your screen. This has all changed and you now have a compose window that opens-up across your screen. This is still being rolled out to most users. So if you don't have the option as yet. Wait a few days and you can use this new feature by Gmail

1. Login to Gmail.

2. Click on Compose

3. Choose the drop-down arrow and select 'default to full-screen'

4. You could also click the arrow with a double-head. This takes you to a full-screen pop-out

To return back to your old compose - click on the broken arrow at the top of your screen. This should bring back your old compose, if you don't want to use the full-screen compose option in Gmail. This was announced via a Google+ post. I have found this very useful as I was using the old compose instead of the new - since it did not have full-screen mode.
