New gmail format

Hate the new gmail format.  Any idea how I can revery back?  Exact and accurate answers pls, no copy and paste from google searches, I have tried that.  Click on the cogs (settings) but I see no option to revert back to old display style

Click the gear looking thing for settings in the upper right, then theres an option that says "revert back to the old look temporarily".

Ryan has correct answer, but also, just know you are putting off the inevitable. The "new look" will be the permanent look soon enough, the current "old" style will to away forever.

Have a Nice Day.

As I pointed out in my posting, I have done that, but that offer is not there in the upper right.

There are two "gears"...one way up on the google tool bar, and one in the same row with your new "archive/delete/etc" toolbar.  It is the latter you want.

This is the cog they are referring to:
 SettingTo be honest I really didn't like the new redesign. I contemplated on reverting back but as the menu said...revert back TEMPORARILY....
I thought I'd better get use to it as eventually it will be here for good. After a few days and trying to configure the look to my taste, I'm glad that I did decide to stick with it. The change sort of grows on you. :)

I agree...I'm not too in love with it either, but, we don't have much of a choice, even being paid Google Apps subscribers.  Maybe one day there will be choices of interface layouts?  And monkeys may fly... :)
