So, how do you skip all that? I
don't use GMail on the Internet except to look at the spam
filter now and then. I am not familiar with the supplied
short cuts. But any time you want to jump from message to
message, typing x in browse mode takes you to the check box
for the next message. You hear, as I recall, the subject line

GMail isn't a web application in the sense that Google Docx
(spelling) is. It is a layout but you aren't working with an

when doing things such as I describe is important for
