Once you select it, you’ll choose the option next to Keyboard Shortcuts and turn them on.

Whie a simple “C” allows you to compose a new message, Shift + “C” will allow you to compose that message in a new window. A less-obvious shortcut is when you select “G” then “T.” This takes you to all of the mail you’ve sent. “*” and “U” selects all of your unread mail, while “*” and then “R” selects all of the mail you’ve read.
