New Gmail system announced, unable to access group

  bpzoom 23:08 12 Jun 2018

Windows 10 Microsoft Edge and Gmail. I accepted the invitation to switch to the new Gmail system. All was well until I tried to add an email to one of my groups. I cannot find the email groups. The link on the old gmail has vanished. There must be another way to access existing groups but I cannot see it. The Help system did not help either. Advice would be appreciated. I have reverted back to the old Gmail.

I have just loaded the new and kept the default Theme. Left Side column, your Log In Name and plus sign shows me groups - although I hadn't set any up so mine is empty.

HTH

Thank you, understood, except I cannot find how you managed to do it. You said keep the default Theme. Left Side column, your Log In Name and plus sign shows me groups I went back into the new Gmail, but cannot find any tab or link to let me do it. I looked in Settings but nothing seemed help. I would be most grateful if you could tell me the step by step procedure to achieve it.

The 'groups' are really labels you create. Not showing in the left column? I don't have my log in name on the left column and the plus only opens a compose page. It took me a while to find my contacts, it's under the 9 dots icon top right near the notification bell icon. Contacts now opens in a new page???

Step 3 here shows how to create a new contacts list (group) label.

In the Left Hand Pane or Column do you have the words GMail at top then below Inbox, starred, snoozed, sent ..... At bottom is your Name and Icon and to right is the Plus sign? If not it must be a Layout.

I also went to the Settings Cog top right, slightly inset, The setting was Density. (Default, Comfortable or Compact) I incorrectly called it a Theme! LOL

That must be it Taff as I was on the default setting whatever it was. Google getting as confusing as Microsoft now lol. Will have a look once back from toil!

Thanks again. No, Taff I do not have the snoozed, sent ..... At bottom is your Name and Icon and to right is the Plus sign?words GMail at top then below Inbox, starred, etc.

As rdave13 says it is under the 9 dots icon top right and opens in a new page. I guess that must be it then?

Thanks to you both for your help. I think I can live with the new Gmail once I get used to it.
