New toolbar button setting: icons or words

When we launched Gmail’s new look, we did something different: we put icons on the buttons. Icons brought consistency across languages and solved problems with functions that had long names.

Some people loved the new icons. Others, especially low vision users, found words easier to distinguish. We’ve been listening to your feedback and we now have a setting that lets you turn the icons into words. You can make the change by clicking the gear to open Settings, and changing your button labels on the General tab.

Love the icons? No problem. Icons will continue to be the default, and you can always hover over the button to see its name.
