Classic Formatting Shortcuts in Gmail

When composing messages in Gmail, if you make any mistakes, you can undo with Control + Z.
And you can redo with Control + Y.
For bold, italic and underline, the shortcuts are the classic ones.
Press Control + B for bold text.
Press Control + I for italics.
Press Control + U for underlining.
Remember to first, select the text using the Shift key and the Arrow keys, or press Control + A to select all text in the message.
And if you are not happy with the formatting, select the text and press Control + \ to set the text back to the default.
Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox work the same as Google Chrome for these classic shortcuts in Gmail. However, if you use a screen reader, Google Chrome seems to give the best indication of formatting at this point.
