You can format your email with rich text options using the formatting tools in the toolbar of Zoho Mail's email composer layout. However, you may not always use all of the tools, and some may never be used. To suit your needs, you can choose to ungroup the default collection, hide specific tools, and group commonly used tools together. This will help you to have a larger content area in relation to the toolbar.

To hide a formatting tool from the toolbar, hover over the field listed under the Toolbar section on the left menu and click on the Eye icon. To re-arrange, un-group, or group the formatting tools, click and hold the tool to drag and drop in the desired position or group on the left menu and visualize the change on the Compose preview â€‹layout.

You can also drag and drop a tool in the desired position from the toolbar itself.
