    Hi Kim, Wow, these are very helpful shortcuts. I’m a big fan of Gmail and of shortcuts so I will be using this frequently. I have bookmarked this handy reference guide.

    Thanks also for the link to the Lifehacker article. I just downloaded the CheatSheet app for my Mac that will help me learn shortcuts as well. They may take a little while to learn but they sure are helpful once they get stuck in your brain.

    Actually I haven’t used gmail but having read this…maybe I should. I have an account at an organization where I work…and like the convenience of being able to access it wherever I am…i’ll take another look…Thanks Kim.

    I love shortcuts but I find that more often then not I forget what they are LOL. I like being able to create my own though. Doing this optimizes the best ones for my personal preferences rather than trying to learn them all.

    I use Gmail as my primary email address because this allows me to sync it with multiple devices. I also really enjoy the fact that it has the best spam filters in town.

    Kim thank you for the shortcuts will pin this don’t want to forget about it. I have been using Gmail more and this will help with productivity. I just started using canned messages in Gmail to respond to some ads I have out there. Experimenting to see what works.

    This is wonderful advice. Now you just have to memorize them to use them. :) And if you haven’t yet, it’s nice to know about that “?” to open up the list at anytime. I suppose it would take time to get used to using these shortcuts. I can see how it could be a quick advantage to do so.
    This is great, thanks so much, Kim.

    Hey Yorinda…

    First, make sure your cursor is not in a text box. If it is, you will simply get the ? typed out. Then, to get it, you need to make sure you use shift+? because the question mark is actually a shift-function on that key. Give it a try!

    At first the shortcuts seem great, but it is an awful lot to memorize. I will find a few of those shortcuts that I can use often and probably ignore the rest. Who knew there were so many.

    Thanks for the shortcuts. I wasn’t aware that so many shortcuts even exists!

    I use gmail, but not for business purposes.

    I have used Gmail for years, and I have never seen such an excellent compilation of shortcut keys. At this point I have probably 75 GMail accounts and even just a second here and there saved in keystroke or mouse clicking time really adds up. Thank you for sharing this with us.
