~ - move to previous tab (left, looping to far right) ` - move to next tab (right, looping to far left) In a complete accident, I found one of the shortcuts while typing up the question and taking screenshots. I tried to switch Chrome windows with Cmd+` (Mac), but dropped off Cmd too soon. The flip version, was a quick matter of trial and error. Edit: ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

As a sort of workaround, if you select-all the text (Ctrl+A) as you start composing, Gmail will unveil the trimmed text. As a side note, as a Thunderbird user I like its quote-only-highlighted-text feature, and it seems it can be enabled in Gmail → Settings → Lab as well—read here.

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 ...

There are certain keyboard shortcuts in Gmail that are always on regardless of whether or not you've enabled Gmail keyboard shortcuts (see below). According to Gmail's keyboard shortcut help: Shortcuts that are always turned on These navigational and formatting shortcuts all work whether or not you've enabled the keyboard shortcuts setting.

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 ...

On April 11th, 2012 at 10:25 - user18941 stated that the shortcut keys (e.g. 9/END) do not work on Windows 7/Chrome (not sure if he means that combination, or any combination containing one of the two) but that's incorrect. The reason why it doesn't appear to work is because the flash player is out of focus by default. If you click the video once, then use ...
