Google Plus Keyboard Shortcuts [Google+]

google plus shortcuts

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.

Google+ Shortcut Keys

JScroll down to next Google+ stream update
KScroll up to previous Google+ stream update
QQPressing Q twice moves your cursor the search box in the “chat” section of Google+
SpaceScroll down stream by regular intervals
Space + ShiftScroll up stream by regular intervals
EnterWhen a stream update is selected Enter moves your cursor to the comment box
Enter + TabSubmit comment
