2.2 Group Maneuvering

All movement commands understand the numeric prefix and will behave as expected, hopefully.

n
Go to the next group that has unread articles (gnus-group-next-unread-group).
p
DEL
Go to the previous group that has unread articles (gnus-group-prev-unread-group).
N
Go to the next group (gnus-group-next-group).
P
Go to the previous group (gnus-group-prev-group).
M-n
Go to the next unread group on the same (or lower) level (gnus-group-next-unread-group-same-level).
M-p
Go to the previous unread group on the same (or lower) level (gnus-group-prev-unread-group-same-level).

Three commands for jumping to groups:

j
Jump to a group (and make it visible if it isn't already) (gnus-group-jump-to-group). Killed groups can be jumped to, just like living groups.
,
Jump to the unread group with the lowest level (gnus-group-best-unread-group).
.
Jump to the first group with unread articles (gnus-group-first-unread-group).

If gnus-group-goto-unread is nil, all the movement commands will move to the next group, not the next unread group. Even the commands that say they move to the next unread group. The default is t.

If gnus-summary-next-group-on-exit is t, when a summary is exited, the point in the group buffer is moved to the next unread group. Otherwise, the point is set to the group just exited. The default is t.
