[How-To] Use Keyboard shortcuts for Gmail’s Compose View

Gmail has a new Compose View, which brings up a new window where one can reply/compose mail. However, the compose window doesn’t get activated when you are replying to an email.


I prefer having the Compose View when I have to reply to an email conversation. In case, you want to reply to an email using the new Gmail’s Compose View, hold Shift button on the keyboard and click on the Reply button. This opens up the Compose Window.

Incase you have Keyboard Shortcuts turned on in the settings of your Gmail account, then you can use the Shortcut – Shift + R , when you are viewing an email message and the shortcut key’s combo opens up the Compose View.
