Gmail Inbox Snippets
When you look at your inbox in Gmail, you see what are called snippets as part of each email. Snippets are a preview of the first line of the email and are shown after the subject of each email.
These can be useful to get a quick insight into the contents of an email but they can also make your Gmail inbox look cluttered. You can change your Gmail settings to not display these snippets and in this post, we’re going to show you how.
To change the snippets settings, click on the Gmail settings icon in the top left-hand corner of your Gmail inbox. This is the icon that looks like a cogged wheel.
This will open Gmail’s quick settings window. In this window, click on the “See all settings” button.
This will display all Gmail’s settings in place of your emails.
Now click on the “General” tab
and scroll down until you see a section near the bottom that is headed “Snippets”.
Click on the radio button for “No snippets” and then click on the “Save Changes” button.
The settings details will close and you will be taken back to your inbox. Notice that the snippets are no longer displayed for each email so your inbox looks tidier!
