I know there are few questions you want me to answer.
Why is my son writing a letter now?
He always makes a phone call!
He is also so busy.
I know In this day and age, few people write letters.
You’re probably wondering why is he writing me an email? Did he meet a
girl whom he wants to marry? I will tell you why I wrote this letter.
I remember the last time we spoke you mentioned you had difficulties in
clicking the mouse and wondered if there was a way that you can manage
to use the computer without using one too much. I’m writing to tell you
that there is a simple shortcut to composing an email in Gmail.
By learning this simple key and many others, things will become much
easier for you in two ways. First you don’t need to struggle anymore
looking for those buttons and can reduce the usage of the mouse and
hopefully be relieved off the pain in your wrist from the Carpal Tunnel
syndrome you always complain about in your emails.
I still remember those days when you used to write letters on that old
typewriter while I sat beside you watching you type away. As s a child
I was so proud of how fast you could type! Mum, I still remember those
wonderful days and I know you can use the computer keyboard to write me
letters with your skilled typewriting hands.
I hope by teaching you some keyboard shortcuts I can help you to remove
your wrist brace and cure your painful wrist so that your life may
become easier. I’m happy that I can help you even though there is a
great distance between us and I promise you I will help you learn these
keyboard shortcuts with the help of simple ideas and articles.
Let us see how Gmail Compose Mail.
can see in this picture, Gmail has made a special pen for you. Have you
noticed when you hold the Gmail pen with your thumb and index finger
(ready for writing) it makes a C
shape. Just C. That is the shortcut
for composing an email in Gmail. No matter what mode you are in: Inbox,
Sent Mail, contacts, etc, just press the letter “C” on the keyboard
whenever you feel like writing an email and Gmail will direct you to
the email composing mode.
