Gmail Reply to All
February 4, 2013 3:48 AM   Subscribe

Does anyone know of an extension for Chrome that will change the default behaviour of Gmail or will add a new button to Gmail in Chrome for Reply to All without having to use the Reply drop-down? I need to Reply to All almost always; reply to only the sender almost never.

There used to be a Lab for this (see #7) but it no longer seems to be available.

If you go to the first page of Gmail settings, you can change the "Default reply behaviour" to "Reply all".

Thanks for the question, btw -- I hadn't even noticed they'd discontinued Labs. :|

That setting has moved from Labs to the General tab, but Labs still exist.

Oh JOY. My world just became a vastly better place - I was driving myself crazy looking for an extension. Thank you!

You can also reply to all by switching on keyboard shortcuts and hitting the A key.

Came in to say what Happy Dave said.

If you're not using the keyboard shortcuts in gmail, you're missing out on lots of potential productivity.

Pressing the question mark key will display a summary of the most important/useful shortcuts.
