Resizing the chat list

You can change the size of your chat list to make it easier for you to use.

To resize your chat list:

  1. At the top of the chat box, click on the drop down arrow  next to your profile picture.
  2. Hover over Most popular to show the menu options.
  3. Choose the size of your chat list by selecting Tiny, Small, Medium, or Large.

If you'd like to minimize your chat list -- just click the Chat  icon at the bottom of the chat box.

You can also turn off the chat list entirely in Gmail. Note: Doing so will sign you out of chat unless you are signed in with another client.
