Zoom, how to use keyboard shortcuts

When you are in the middle of a Zoom video meeting at home and your cat suddenly decides to start crying over dinner you may be faced with two sudden choices: either reach for your mouse or touchpad and start looking for the “Mute” button or you can use a quick keyboard shortcut to instantly mute the audio and not make a fool of yourself.

Zoom has a long list of keyboard shortcuts that you can use before or during a video conference.

Using these shortcuts, you can quickly join a meeting; mute and unmute the audio; start, pause and stop recording; switch from Loudspeaker (a large image of the person speaking) to Gallery (several images of equal size, regardless of who is speaking); and perform a variety of other tasks.
