Use Keyboard Shortcuts (Hotkeys) in Gmail, Google Reader and Calendar

If you use Gmail, Google Reader, or Google Calendar, do you know your keyboard shortcuts? These handy hotkeys can save your fingers, your wrists, and your time.

A while ago, Lifehacker pointed everyone to a handy printable list of Gmail shortcuts. Since then, I have begun using Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Reader. In fact, I have finally abandoned Outlook for Google.

If you have searched for an all-in-one list of Google keyboard shortcuts, you have come to the right place. I have compiled hotkeys for Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Reader into one printable document that you can tack to your wall. This list also includes shortcuts that you get by using the Greasemonkey script Gmail Macros.

Here are links to the Google pages, where I obtained the shortcut lists: Gmail, Calendar, Reader.


Google Shortcuts Sheet: PDF or Microsoft Word.

Please let me know if you find this sheet useful. If I have made an error, please contact me, and I will fix it ASAP. Please post any comments you might have, or drop me a line.

    First site Ive seen that intentionally removes the “nofollow” tag. : ) So I would like to give a plug to my site for keyboard shortcuts, keyxl.com. It has tens of thousands of keyboard shortcuts listed for win, mac and linux.
    Worth checking out! I guess this is spam but hopefully relevant and useful spam! : ) Thankyou. In return for your gracious removal of the nofollow you have a very polite spammer.

    Justin – I’m a self-employed lawyer. One of the awesome things about being self-employed is deciding what software I will use. :)
