Zoom’s keyboard shortcuts allow you to quickly manage your meetings, change the layout, or toggle parts of the interface on and off with just a few key presses. These hotkeys can turn you into a Zoom expert!
Zoom has useful keyboard shortcuts on its desktop client, all of which you can change from the Settings menu.
On a Windows PC or a Mac, just click the Settings cog in the top-right to edit the hotkeys. On Linux, click your profile icon to access the Settings menu. Next, click “Keyboard Shortcuts” to explore the current hotkey setup for your machine. You can do this during a meeting, as well.
Click any shortcut to edit it. Press the keys to which you want to assign a command, and it will automatically change. You can press multiple keys, such as Alt+Shift+9, or a single one, like 9.
To disable a keyboard shortcut, click it, press Del to empty it, and then press Enter. Zoom will remove the keyboard shortcut associated with that action.ADVERTISEMENT
If you want to use Zoom shortcuts while you’re in another window without activating the hotkeys for that program, click the checkbox next to the “Enable Global Shortcut” option next to that hotkey. At any point, you can click “Restore Defaults” to return all hotkeys to their original settings.
