Fortunately, Gmail has another trick up its sleeve. With another handy keyboard combination, it lets you type just a label's first letters and navigate to it swiftly.
Go to Any Label or View Fast in Gmail
To open any label or view swiftly in Gmail:
- Press g followed by l.
- Start typing the label or view's name.
- Select the desired label from the menu.
- Press 's', for example, and use the up and down key to highlight Sent Mail, Spam or Starred.
- Gmail looks for the typed characters at the beginning of words, even if they appear in the middle of a label's name. Typing 'm', for example, finds All Mail and Sent Mail as well as my-mail, for instance.
- Press Enter.
