Y: Archive in Gmail

To move the current message conversation into the Archive, just press the “y” key.

If you’re in the “Starred” section, Y will un-star the message.

If you’re in a custom labeled section, Y will remove that label. (For example, if you have a label for “Personal” and you’ve clicked on that Personal label link, so all of the messages you’re viewing are tagged as “Personal,” then the Y will remove the Personal label from the current message, meaning it will also be removed from the current view.)

If you’re in the Spam or Sent or All Mail section, the Y key does nothing.
