Keyboard shortcuts help you save time by allowing you to never take your hands off the keyboard to use the mouse. To use them, you'll first have to turn them on by going to “Settings” and selecting “Keyboard shortcuts on” in the General tab. Then, these keys will perform these actions:
c – compose new email
/ – moves your cursor to the search bar so you can search your archives
n – moves to select the next message (hit to open it)
p – moves to select the previous message (hit to open it)
u – returns you to your inbox from viewing an open email
e – archives the email you are viewing or have selected
r – reply
f – forward
For more keyboard shortcuts, see Google's official list.
There were a couple of Gmail shortcuts I had not used before that seem very useful.
The ‘r’ and ‘f’ are too obvious and are going to be so useful.
I have always used ‘j’ and ‘k’ for next & previous but ‘n’ and ‘p’ are more easily remembered for most folk.
The other shortcut I see using a lot is the ‘/’ since I am always filtering my mail looking for something.
