The keyboard shortcuts do not work properly for me. I am only able to cycle right to left using ~ (which requires holding shift and pressing ` . However, just pressing does not cycle left to right as it should. Anyone else having this problem? I've tested it in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari and on Windows 8.1 and OS X 10.8.5. I've also tested it in a clean browser with no plugins or extensions to interfere. Anyone have a solution?

  • What are 'tab groupings'? Nov 6, 2013 at 0:29
  • @VidarS.Ramdal I assume these are the "inbox" tabs: Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates and Forums (some, all or none of these might be enabled - I personally only use the "Primary" tab, so I don't see any.)

Be sure that in your Gmail account settings, the option Keyboard shortcuts is On.

  • If "Keyboard shortcuts" was "off" then presumably the OP wouldn't be able to "cycle right to left using ~"?
