How to Set Basic HTML as Default Gmail View
You can directly access the Gmail in classic interface by using link below:
When your Gmail interface will switch to the classic mode, a notification on the top of the page will appear notifying you that you are using Gmail in classic view and whether you want it as a default Gmail view or not. Click the link that says: “Set basic HTML as default view” and Gmail will remember your choice.
Basic HTML view of Gmail is simple, straight forward and is what most online community is used to with. But simplified version of Gmail lacks many useful features.
Following are features that are available in only Gmail standard view:
- Google Docs and Google Calendar
- Keyboard shortcuts

- Composing options such as spell checker, rich formatting, address auto-complete, custom From address
- Contact management
- Web clips
