Google's New Settings Drop Down

Google has changed the top navigation where you manage your settings. Here is a picture of the new way it is handled:

google settings drop down

As you can see, the "Settings" link drops down when you click on it and gives you the option to click on "search settings" or "Google account settings." This is a small change and you will only see the drop down when you are logged into Google, but it is a change indeed.

The first person I know who spotted this was Darrin Ward. Outside of that, I have not seen much discussion on it. In fact, this is the first time I am seeing this new navigation, myself. Maybe it has to do with the top navigation going missing recently?

Yes I noticed this a few days ago as well. Not only do I not think the change was needed but now I have have two clicks to get into my Google Account instead of One!

I noticed a little later than Darrin as it's only just changed in the UK. Not sure why the change and it didn't seem broke. http://www.aukseo.co.uk/google-my-account-links-now-google-account-setting-601/
