What would happen if you type X and Y in your GMail interface.

Assume you have Keyboard shortcuts enabled and have focus on the GMail tab / window

x Select conversation Automatically checks and selects a conversation so that you can archive, apply a label, or choose an action from the drop-down menu to apply to that conversation.



y Archive (Remove from current view ) Automatically removes the message or conversation from your current view.
• From ‘Inbox,’ ‘y’ means Archive
• From ‘Starred,’ ‘y’ means Unstar
• From any label, ‘y’ means Remove the label

* ‘y’ has no effect if you’re in ‘Spam,’ ‘Sent,’ or ‘All Mail.’
