Summary of GNUS Commands

Reading news is a two step process:

  1. Choose a newsgroup in the Newsgroup buffer.
  2. Select articles from the Summary buffer. Each article selected is displayed in the Article buffer in a large window, below the Summary buffer in its small window.

Each GNUS buffer has its own special commands, but commands that do the similar things have similar key bindings. Here are commands for the Newsgroup and Summary buffers:

In the Newsgroup buffer, suspend GNUS. You can return to GNUS later by selecting the Newsgroup buffer and typing g to get newly arrived articles.
In the Newsgroup buffer, update your `.newsrc' initialization file and quit GNUS. In the Summary buffer, exit the current newsgroup and return to the Newsgroup buffer. Thus, typing q twice quits GNUS.
In the Newsgroup buffer, list all the newsgroups available on your news server (except those you have killed). This may be a long list!
In the Newsgroup buffer, list only the newsgroups to which you subscribe and which contain unread articles.
In the Newsgroup buffer, unsubscribe from (or subscribe to) the newsgroup listed in the line that point is on. When you quit GNUS by typing q, GNUS lists in your `.newsrc' file which groups you have subscribed to. The next time you start GNUS, you won't see this group initially, because GNUS normally displays only subscribed-to groups.
In the Newsgroup buffer, "kill" the current line's newsgroup--don't even list it in `.newsrc' from now on. This affects future GNUS sessions as well as the present session. When you quit GNUS by typing q, GNUS writes information in the file `.newsrc' describing all newsgroups except those you have "killed."
In the Newsgroup buffer, select the group on the line under the cursor and display the first unread article in that group. In the Summary buffer, Thus, you can move through all the articles by repeatedly typing SPC.
In the Newsgroup Buffer, move point to the previous newsgroup containing unread articles. In the Summary buffer, scroll the text of the article backwards.
Move point to the next unread newsgroup, or select the next unread article.
Move point to the previous unread newsgroup, or select the previous unread article.
Move point to the next or previous item, even if it is marked as read. This does not select the article or newsgroup on that line.
In the Summary buffer, do an incremental search of the current text in the Article buffer, just as if you switched to the Article buffer and typed C-s.
M-s regexp RET
In the Summary buffer, search forward for articles containing a match for regexp.
C-c C-s C-n
C-c C-s C-s
C-c C-s C-d
C-c C-s C-a
In the Summary buffer, sort the list of articles by number, subject, date, or author.
In the Summary buffer, read the next or previous article with the same subject as the current article.
