There is a keyboard shortcut for almost anything you can do with your mouse in Gmail, and they help you save time by getting things done with as little mouse work as possible.

To enable keyboard shortcuts, click the gear icon in the upper right and choose "Settings." Under the "Keyboard shortcuts" header, click the second radio button to turn shortcuts "on," then "Save" your changes at the bottom.

To see a list of usable shortcuts, press "Shift" and forward slash on your keyboard.

Here, you'll see seven categories or shortcuts, each of the shortcuts they include, and what they can help you accomplish.
