Once again before you go off from this Gmail tutorial the Gmail shortcut for deleting a message is # key.

You may use the # key once you see a particular message is not worth to read, or after reading a message before you move to another one.


Note: It is known to anyone that you have to Hold Shift while you press The # Key.
