Gmail keyboard shortcuts

Gmail keyboard shortcuts take a few minutes to learn and will probably save you hours of moving your mouse around each year.

To use them, the first step is to enable keyboard shortcuts.

There are lots of keyboard shortcuts for Gmail – I recommend you learn a couple per week for a month or two.

The following shortcuts are particularly useful for Inbox When Ready users:

Action Shortcut
Compose message c
Search messages /
Next message j
Previous message k

The PRO edition of Inbox When Ready includes a show / hide inbox shortcut. You can use either of these key combinations:

  • Ctrl + Shift + I
  • Ctrl + Alt + I
