Use keyboard shortcuts in Google Groups

You can use keyboard shortcuts to move quickly through Google Groups. The shortcuts are different in new Groups and classic Groups.

Note: To use single-letter keyboard shortcuts on a screen reader with different modes, use focus mode (for NVDA) or turn off the virtual cursor (for JAWS).
