Many users like to customize their experience on their web platforms. Even if it is a change of color, you may find yourself more eager to work and make use of your apps, browser, mobile device and any gadget that allows for the tiniest bit of customization. Gmail is no exception, as it is possible to change its clean and simple layout with one of the many themes there are available for download.
Gmail themes will let you change the way your account looks and feels, as you can choose your favorite color set and different background images to fit your personality. A theme is only a visual extension, as it will not change in any way or shape the things you do with Gmail. Installing a theme is also very easy, as it will not affect your other Google services in any way other than the theme itself.
