Google Talk (GTalk) is my favorite instant messenger for personal communication. As I use the messenger almost every day I mastered the keyboard shortcuts and efficiently using the application.
If you want to use GTalk effectively, learn these keyboard shortcuts:
|F9||Launch GMail to send an email to the person you are chatting with|
|Esc||Close the current chat window|
|Alt + Esc||Close all chat windows|
|F11||Begin a voice call|
|F12||Cancel the voice call|
|Tab||Switch between the opened chat windows|
