Shortcut your Zoom meetings.

Zoom has been around for a while now, and hopefully, we have all moved past wondering if our mics are muted or not, if we are properly framed and so on... but if you are still unsure you have come to the right place, we got you! We are committed to making sure you become a zoom pro (for more zoom tips check out some of our quick reads on lighting and sound) , and pretty soon you will be telling people to go mute themselves.


By now you should have come to terms with the fact that zoom has become an integral part of how we communicate. We use Zoom for everything, we have meetings, we hang out with friends and family, we attend conferences, and the kids go to school on zoom, so becoming more proficient at using the app can be of benefit to you. Below are a few useful keyboard shortcuts to help you master the app.

Zoom keyboard shortcuts for PC

  • Alt + Q: End or leave meeting

  • Alt + V: Start meeting

  • Alt + M: Mute/unmute audio for everyone except host (For the meeting host only)

  • Alt + A: Mute/Unmute

  • Alt + V: Start/Stop video

  • Alt + Y: Raise/lower hand

Zoom keyboard shortcuts for MacOS

  • Command (⌘) + W: End or leave meeting

  • Command (⌘) + Control + V: Start meeting

  • Command (⌘) + Control + M: Mute/unmute audio for everyone except host (For the meeting host only)

These are just a few of the keyboard shortcuts we have found are most useful and we use them regularly. Though Zoom meetings can have you wondering if every meeting has to be a zoom call, most things discussed in these meetings can be summed up in an email!


But you have to admit Zoom does have its pros, I mean you don't need to drive to work meetings as much anymore, if at all and you don't have to wear pants to meetings, if you don't want to, though I would advice you do, it's just good practice.
