Using Gmail Shortcuts

Web based e-mail programs are awesome because you are no longer tied to a specific machine for getting at your email.

Gmail is still my absolute favorite system and if you’re like me and use it every day, you should checkout the keyboard shortcuts which can make it even better.

Shortcuts can eliminate the need to move your hands off the keyboard allowing you to be more efficient.

Most of the truly helpful shortcuts start with the letter G as in Gmail followed by a another character.

For example, typing G then A will let you see all mail,.

Typing G then D allows you to jump to your Draft messages.

Typing G then C will get you straight to your contacts.

If you use the option for Starred messages, typing G then S will show them and if you type G then T as in senT, you’ll jump to your sent messages.

There are more than 60 keyboard shortcuts that can dramatically reduce your dependence on your mouse to get the job done.
