A Gmail conversation can quickly become confusing because by default, Gmail puts the most recent messages at the bottom of your conversation view. That forces you to have to scroll down past all your previous messages to find the latest email.
Our latest productivity tool, Gmail Conversation Thread Reversal, is a simple way to change your gmail conversation view that in just 1 click!
Step 1. Install Gmail Conversation Thread Reversal
Gmail Conversation Thread Reversal is a free Chrome extension available in the Google Chrome Web Store.
It’s free for anyone using Gmail, and it installs in seconds with just a click.
Step 2. Click the Thread Reversal Icon to Reverse the Conversation Order
After you’ve installed Gmail Conversation Thread Reversal, you’ll see a new icon when you open an email in Gmail.
