How to automatically expand all messages.

I opened a 2nd gmail account.

With the original account, email exchanges are not automatically linked together.

And, if there are several emails included in one (answering an email, where the original email is included along with my response) with my original gmail account all of the emails are expanded.

With my new gmail account, the other emails are all Collapsed, and I have to click on "Expand all" to get to read them all.

I don't want to have to do this.
 
 I don't want similar emails automatically linked together if they were sent separately. I want my emails listed in the order they arrived. If I want an earlier email from the same person, I'll click on it - I don't want gmail connecting it automatically to other emails from the same person.
 

And I want all emails automatically Expanded, not Collapsed.

How do I do this? Have looked at all the settings but can't find how to accomplish this.    
 
Here's a previous post asking a similar question:
 
 
"I am new in gmail. I sent someone an email, and now after sending it, I'd like to add a further question to it.

So I went into "Sent Mail", clicked on the email I'd sent to this person, and clicked reply.
I do this with other emails services I use.
I usually then add something at the top of the previously sent email, and then click "Send".

I did that in this case, but now that I go into "Sent Mail", I only see 1 email sent to this person, instead of the 2 I sent.
It looks like gmail just combines the 2 emails into one in the "Sent Mail" folder?
If so, it's an awful system - I can't tell if it even was sent out or not.

With every other email service I've used, it would display both emails separately in the "Sent Mail" folder."
 
Unfortunately, it appears this question was never responded to for some reason.

Go to Settings/General and turn off Conversation View. That should do it for you.

Thanks. That seems to have done it.
 
Gmail should have people opt in to Conversation View.
 
I remember having this same problem with my 1st Gmail account.
