Disable Conversation View in GMail

If you’re a GMail user, you’re probably familiar with how e-mail messages with the same topic are grouped together in a thread-like “conversation view”, which enables you to quickly see previous e-mails that you have sent and received.

However, if you are just switching to GMail or have been a GMail user for a while, but don’t really like the conversation view, you can now disable it and go back to having messages displayed individually, rather than grouped together.

If you would like to disable “conversation view” in GMail, you can do so by logging into your GMail account and then clicking on the “Settings” button, which is located in the top right corner of the GMail interface.

From there, you should click on the “General” tab, which may be the first tab that is selected when you go to the “Settings” page, and then choose the “Conversation view off” option, which should be the sixth option in the “General” tab.

In order to reenable “conversation view”, you can do so by simply going back to the “Settings” menu and then to the “General” tab. From there, you should choose the “Conversation view on” option.

If you would like more information about the option to disable GMail’s “conversation view”, you should check out this post from the Official GMail Blog.
