We can mark all emails using keyboard shortcut Ctrl + A in Yahoo! Mail. Are there any keyboard shortcut to unmark all emails?

It will only unmark all emails if all emails are marked using Ctrl+A. If some emails are marked it cannot able to unmark all emails. – chanchal1987 Oct 2 '10 at 17:37
In that case <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>+<kbd>A</kbd> followed by <kbd>Up Arrow</kbd> or <kbd>Down Arrow</kbd> will do the trick. – rbtgde Oct 2 '10 at 18:22

Here is a list of the keyboard shortcuts available in Yahoo! Mail.


By unmark do you mean "Mark as Unread"?
