Cool sheet. Thanks for sharing.

Great cheat sheet, fred! Lots of useful info. I use gmail, and I had no idea about most of these shortcuts.

I agree. These are all new to me!

I have modified the order : now shortcut keys is at the right.. I think it's better like that

hi there i am fresh member here so i simply just need to launch me personally as well as say hola

Is there a shortcut for "Go to Category"? Ever since Gmail switched to using categories recently, the "Go to label" shortcut doesn't work for categories.

nice work..this will make us all more productive
