Get Help Remembering Gmail Shortcuts With KeyRocket
Did you know that Gmail has many built-in shortcuts? They are turned off by default, but if you use Gmail heavily, you can turn them on to make your inbox more efficient.
For example, once enabled, Shift + I can make the message read, # can delete it, and Shift + C can start a new message in a new window. Shortcuts can be very helpful ( we’ve even rounded up a ton of our favorites here ) if you actually use them.
To get used to a new habit, such as using shortcuts, you need to change a little. KeyRocket is a Chrome extension that can help.
The extension pays attention to what you are doing in Gmail and then subtly reminds you when you might have used a keyboard shortcut in a situation where you chose mouse clicks and the like instead.
If you’re just getting started using shortcuts, the extension can be a useful way for you to remind yourself what shortcuts are available so you can use them in the future.
And if you didn’t know Gmail had shortcuts out of the box, you can enable them by going into the Gmail settings menu and scrolling down to the Keyboard Shortcuts menu under the General tab.
