Video meetings are something we’ve all had to do more of in 2020. Zoom is one popular platform used by many. We have researched Zoom shortcuts to make your life a bit easier and help you navigate online meetings like a pro.
For PC users, try the following keyboard commands:
- Alt + I: Quick Invite
- Alt + R: Record Meeting (Alt+P: to pause/resume recording)
- Alt+Shift+S: Share Screen (Alt+T to pause/resume sharing)
- Alt + A: Mute Audio
- Alt+V: Turn Off Video
- Alt+M: Mute Everyone
One additional tip that we think is useful is: Disable Waiting Room. The Zoom “waiting room” feature requires you to admit each attendee individually. You can turn this setting off under Settings > In Meeting (Advanced) > Waiting room.
And not that you need it, but just for fun you can go to Settings > Video, check “Touch up my appearance,” and Zoom will soften the focus on your camera, theoretically minimizing any issues with your skin.
If you use Slack, you can start Zoom meetings right from Slack. Just type “/zoom” in Slack to see all the options.
