Move Icon Column is the latest Google Labs feature
Google has added a new minor feature to Gmail through Labs.
This new optional functionality is named ‘Move Icon Column’.
If enabled, it allows you to move the icon columns to a different location.
The idea is to enable users of widescreen displays to get the icons at a more suitable place.
If you’d like try out “Move Icon Column,” simply visit the Labs tab under Gmail Settings, find this new Lab in the list, hit enable, and then save. It’s not big and it’s not clever but hopefully this lab might just be helpful for you too; it’s the little things in life after all.
