Ok... now Gmail 'upgraded' my account too. I like the overall design changes, but why oh why did they remove the send (etc.) buttons below the editing area when you compose a new email? I used to TAB through the recepient, topic and text input areas and then use TAB again to send it (almost like here i the forum).

I tried a few Google searches, but couldn't find out how to send a mail now without touching the mouse... is there a way?

When I foolishly agreed to be switched to the new look, I recall being told that I could temporarily switch back via Settings if I didn't like it.  I didn't like it, and I went to the Options button in the upper-right-hand corner, chose Settings, and there was the option to change back temporarily.  I did so, and am still using the old look.  Of course, I did all this using the mouse, but I suspect there must be a way to access Options and Settings via the keyboard.  (Then again, I'd assume there was a way to Send a message, too.  tellme )

Yes, you can still send messages without using the mouse, as cyberdiva said.

After ensuring keyboard shortcuts are enabled see here for list of keyboard shortcuts to use with gmail.

Wow, thanks... that's *really* weird! You can *still* TAB out of the editing window and hit enter to send the email, even though there's no more visible send button there after the redesign!  cheesy

Pressing Tab will highlight the Send button above the editing window.
