If you are having an email account on gmail.com and using it daily, you need to be an expert in it. Ever given it a thought that you could use it in a faster way?
No worries..!! Today i am listing some short-cuts that you can use while accessing gmail, they will surely make you rule the screen.
To use these short-cuts, you first need to enable keyboard short-cuts in the gmail settings, as shown below:
– SCROLL THROUGH YOUR INBOX
After activating the keyboard short-cuts you will see a subtle blue bar (as shown in the image below). This will indicate the message that you have selected. You can scroll through these messages, using K key to go to a newer post and J key to move to older ones.
– MOVE BETWEEN NEW AND OLD EMAILS
As you used the J and K keys for shifting to messages on the inbox screen, these keys will perform a similar function even when the message has been opened. Try it.
– DELETING AN EMAIL
To quickly delete an openend email from the inbox, use the following keys :
Press the “Up” arrow key + Press “Shift” key + Press “3” (#)
– COMPOSE A NEW EMAIL
To compose a new email, simply press the C key,and a new email window will appear.
– SENDING THE EMAIL
When you have done writing your email and want to send it to an email address. Simply enter all details and press “Ctrl” + “Enter”, instead of moving the cursor over to Send button.
– EXPLORE CONVERSATIONS
When an email has several answers, they are saved as conversations. To scroll through these messages you can use the N key to go up and P key to go down. A subtle blue mark appears on the current selected part of the conversation.
– ANSWER, REPLY, FORWARD
When you want to answer all contacts who received a copy of the email, press the A key.
When you want to reply to an email, press the R key.
When you want to forward an email to someone, press the F key.
– SAVE DRAFTS
if for any reason you wish to save the email in between as a draft, simply use the keys, “Ctrl” + S.
– UNDO YOUR ACTION
In case you accidentally deleted an email, and want it back. Relax and press the key Z. You
will get back your lost email.
Well, I hope i introduced a new side of the gmail to you.
