Gmail Keyboard Shortcuts — Quickly Access a Cheat Sheet

by Brett M. Christensen

Are you a Gmail user? If so, you can speed up your workflow with keyboard shortcuts.

You might already use some of the most common ones. But, there is a stack of Gmail keyboard shortcuts you may not be aware of. No problem!

There is a convenient cheat sheet that lists them all in one place. And, you can access it from right within Gmail itself.

How? You guessed it! By using a keyboard shortcut.
Just hit:

shift + ?

The cheat sheet will magically appear.

Hit “shift + ?” again, and the cheat sheet will disappear. Or, you can click the “Open in a new window” link at the top right to access detailed documentation.

Of course, keyboard shortcuts are only helpful if you commit them to memory and they become a part of your workflow. A cheat sheet can help you to learn and remember the shortcuts you want to use.
After a while, you probably won’t need to bring up the cheat sheet any more. Your fingers will automatically “remember” what keys to press to get the result you are after.

But, if you forget a shortcut or you want to start using more of them, then this cheat sheet is your friend.

Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!
