Top Tip #8 – Keyboard shortcuts within Microsoft Teams

Did you know there are keyboard shortcuts you can use within Teams? These can be great to help you get quickly and easily to different places and allow you to work more efficiently. For people with mobility or vision disabilities, keyboard shortcuts can be easier than using the touchscreen and are an essential alternative to using a mouse. 

You can access the keyboard shortcuts directly from within the app by going to the search bar and typing in /keys. This will bring up a range of keyboard shortcuts covering general, navigation, messaging, meetings, calls and calendar.  

Here are some of the shortcuts that are quick and easy to use: 

On Windows 
Go to Search CTRL + E 
Start new chat CRTL + N 
Open Files CRTL + 6 

On Mac 
Go to Search Command + E 
Start new chat Command + N 
Open Files Command + 6
