Gmail Shortcut keys

Gmail shortcut keys allows you to do all of your email tasks without the use of the mouse. Rather than pointing your mouse at the email and clicking buttons, you can simply press a single or a combination of buttons to execute tasks like checking emails, archive, reply, and more. These shortcut keys are probably the most powerful features in Gmail and mastering them can save hours every month and gain productivity.
