Is there a keyboard shortcut to "Expand all" emails in a conversation after having navigated via j or k? Typing Enter after j or k doesn't do much.
As far as I know there isn't a keyboard shortcut for this.
You can use n (Next message) or p (previous message) to navigate up and down the conversation tree. You can then use o or Enter to expand an individual message that is part of a conversation.
As per comments, once you enabled
Keyboard shortcuts on in
mail > Settings, you can use
; for "expand entire conversation" and
: for "collapse entire conversation". This and more shortcuts: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6594?hl=en
Original: There is a "custom keyboard shortcut" feature you can enable in labs through Gmail > Settings. Once enabled you can use ";" for "expand all" and ":" for "collapse all" or setup other shortcut you want to use instead.
There is a Chrome extension that does this https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gmail-expand-all-keyboard/ciocgdpejlhegbegfjlfhjgjgbfcjkgb?hl=en&gl=JP
To expand the conversation list, follow the step:
- Press j or k as the case may be to select a conversation.
- Press O to open the list which will have the oldest and newest conversation expanded and rest collapsed.
- Press n or p and you will notice that it selects the number against a collapsed conversation.
- Press o to open the conversation.
- Use n or p to navigate.
