Missing Gmail™ & Google™ Black Bar - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot


Adds a black shortcut bar like the one removed by Google™ to the top of many Google™ pages.

***Works with the new version of GMail*** 04/2022 - Removed Google+ link 06/2018 - Added Unread button to quickly show all unread messages For those of you that don't like the new shortcut block Google has substituted for the black bar across the top of the Gmail (and others) page I offer this alternative. This extensions will add a black shortcut bar to the top of the Google Search, Gmail, Contacts, Google Drive, Groups, Sites and Calendar pages with all the links from the old version plus some useful new ones. Pressing the Alt+G keyboard shortcut will open the toolbar menu.

Sorry to hear you're having technical difficulties. I just double checked and it still successfully adds the black bar to the top of the GMail screen. I checked in Chrome version Version 96.0.4664.110. Maybe try closing Chrome and reopening it.

THANK YOU! I can't believe Google replaced the bar with the stupid grid box... Turns every single task into a two click operation.
