Google Plus Keyboard Shortcuts [Google+]

Click here to view the Complete Google+ Setup Guide

I’ve compiled a list of shortcut keys for Google+ below. They really help you move through the interface and help avoid some display bugs that occur when just using the mouse.

My favorite one is when writing a comment, press Tab + Enter to submit the comment. Enter alone doesn’t work because it is used to perform a carriage return.
