Gmail Desktop version on iPad

Postby telboy » Thu Nov 07, 2019 11:41 am

Does anyone know how to get the desktop version of Gmail for my iPad :?: iPad version of Gmail is quite limited with a default font size and the facility to format text in Bold, Italic and Underline.

The desktop version on my MacBook allows font changes of Small, Normal, Large & Huge as well as colouring type, formatting text and enabling the use of tabs and bullet points all of which I find very useful.

Please, no instructions via iPad settings, accessibility etc on how to enlarge text for readability on an iPad.

UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity.

Enrique - Found that site and tried the suggestions but had problems trying to log out of Gmail as suggested, in trying to log out I was given two options One - would close the account indefinitely or two - for access to another account, which I don't have. The option to change to the 'desktop version' didn't appear at the bottom of the lefthand pane as I said, wasn't happy with the comments from other people on the link so I'll stick with what I have, don't want to cause more problems. Cheers anyway

Try this link for more information.I do not think the Desktop Version is supposed to work on an IPAD.
