    Do you accidentally reply-all too often?

    To change the default reply behavior in Gmail first click the Gear and then click Settings:

    Then, in the General tab, scroll down to "Default reply behavior" and change the radio button to "Reply":

    After setting your reply preference, scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes".

    If you are using the Gmail app on an Android phone go to the "3 line" menu, then Settings -> General Settings.

    There is a check box for reply-all on that screen that can be used to change the default reply-all behavior when using the app.
