Delete a single email in Gmail™ with a customizable user shortcut (default is Shift + 5).
Google's Gmail™ has allowed a keyboard shortcut to delete entire message threads (#) for a long time, but it has never made it possible to use a keyboard shortcut to delete individual emails in threads.
Enter Delete Key for Gmail™. Press Shift + 5 (% symbol), and voila - only the current individual message is deleted. It performs the same action as clicking the menu button on a message and selecting "Delete this message."
The best part is you can change this shortcut to anything you want from the extension's Options page.
