Not using Gmail shortcuts? Shame on you.
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t use gmail. Once I found out about gmail shortcuts, my process-obsessed mind made it a priority to learn and implement. Everyone on my team is required to learn and use, at minimum, the basics.

All you have to do is press “?” and you’ll get a full list of shortcuts, right inside your browser. Pretty awesome, eh?!
How come my keyboard shortcuts are not working?
Before you can use these keyboard shortcuts, you’ll need to enable keyboard shortcuts in your settings:
- Click the gear in the top right and select Settings.
- Find the “Keyboard shortcuts” section and select Keyboard shortcuts on.
- Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
