Get the text back on Gmail buttons

Ever since Gmail launched its new look there have been some positive, some negative and some extremely negative reactions. But what I really hated was the fact that now there were only icons present instead of labels on the buttons. Worse, there was no way to get it back!

But now Google has finally added a setting so that you can get the text back on buttons. On the top-right you will find gear icon (Settings), click on it and from the popup menu click on Settings.

In the General tab you will find a setting "Button labels" with options as Icons or Text. Select Text and save the changes.

And you have your text back on the buttons.

But this does not change the gear icon on top-right which stays as is. But I can live with that!
