While it's not directly possible in the current version with its own keystroke, there is another very simple way to accomplish this. First, be located in the row on which you want to insert a row above or below. Then do the following (keys are on Mac, so translate as necessary for your OS): Ctrl + Option + I - invokes the Insert menu Then hit the R key ...

I noticed that if you just hit the down arrow followed by Enter then the trimmed content is shown. Hitting the down arrow highlights the "..." reflecting the trimmed content, then hitting Enter has the same effect as clicking on it.

While not a simple shortcut, there are several ways to achieve fullscreen play without a mouse: Visit https://youtube.com/html5 and opt-in to the experiment. After that most (but not all) youtube videos will use the native <video> tag instead of Flash, with a slightly different UI. The fullscreen control is reachable in this UI by pressing (quite a ...

Jumping to the Inbox should be sufficient to kick off the refresh. The keyboard shortcut for that is g then i.

There is no Gmail shortcut to check for new mail in Gmail. I guess Google thinks new e-mails appear immediately in the ajax-based UI. Since it's not the case (I had the exact same issue as yours), I use my browser shortcut to reload the page (ctrl+R or F5). I'm aware this is not optimal as reload the whole page wastes resources.

GMail's "New Compose" doesn't support hotkeys since it has to allow for text entry. There are however ways to use the keyboard to access the submenu as ashtu mentioned. If you would like to label the message first before doing anything else, you can push shift tab to immediately jump to the drop down menu, then push space or arrow key up/down to expand the ...

I found a workaround. Select a piece of text in the document. Ctrl+Alt+H opens the Help menu. Arrow down puts the focus in the Search all menus menu. Type "cour", hit Enter.

Works for me on windows - I would suggest that OS X is hijacking the shortcut. You could possibly try overriding the Keyboard system preferences (I think it's in: System Preferences | Keyboard | Keyboard Shortcuts). This search had some useful links.

It seems there is no shortcut for this. I know two workarounds: Press , (comma) to move focus to the toolbar, and then press Tab a few times to get to the Older/Newer navigation buttons. While walking through messages with j / k, press Shift+Tab a few times to walk backwards in the mailbox buttons until you reach the Older/Newer navigation buttons.

It doesn't look possible with the native Gmail interface. While there is a "Custom Keyboard Shortcuts" Lab that you could activate, it doesn't let you define the actions you can take. All it allows you is to change the keys used to fire the already-defined actions. It looks like you'll need a browser extension or some other tool to do exactly what you ...

I'm from México using a Spanish-ISO keyboard on a MacBook. The shortcut doesn't work with Alt+# so I used the LAB tab on Gmail settings to add "Keyboard Shortcuts by Alan S" and it's working great!
