Gmail Keyboard Shortcuts

If you receive a lot of messages in your Gmail account, you'll be more productive if you use keyboard shortcuts.

Keyboard shortcuts help you save time since you never have to take your hands off the keyboard to use the mouse. You'll need a Standard 101/102-Key or Natural PS/2 Keyboard to use the shortcuts.

To turn these case-sensitive shortcuts on or off, click Settings, and then pick an option next to Keyboard shortcuts. Screen reading technology may not be compatible with the following shortcuts.
