With more people on Teams than ever, you may be wondering how to become an even bigger super user. We asked the Teams team to share their favorite keyboard shortcuts that help them stay efficient. Check out the top 10 shortcuts for meetings, chatting, and navigation below!

 

When you are in a meeting

We want to make sure your focus is on the meeting content rather than figuring out how to share your screen. Below are some shortcuts to make it easy for you to switch your camera on or off and quickly mute yourself if there is any background noise. This will help your meetings run more smoothly.

 

1. Ctrl + shift + M – Mute/unmute yourself

Picture1.png

 

2. Ctrl + shift + O – Turn on/off your camera

*The Images were taken with the new modern meeting experience which will be rolling out soon. These commands will still work in your current interface.

 

 

When you are chatting and collaborating

We want to make it easy for you work with your colleagues. With these shortcuts, you can easily start conversations, search for content, and quickly edit messages.

 

3. Ctrl + N – Start a new chat 

Picture4.png

 

4. ^  Hit your arrow key and it will edit your last message sent (without needing to click on “…”) 

Picture6.png

 

5. Ctrl + O – Attach a file

When you are navigating

We want to decrease the number of clicks and quickly get you to where you want to be within Teams. These shortcuts will help you move between your chats, teams, and calls, and search of information quickly.

 

6. Ctrl + 1+ 2 + 3 – Navigate up and down the left navigation rail. (i.e. Ctrl + 1 = Activity feed; Ctrl +2 = Chat; Ctrl + 3 = Teams etc.)

Picture7.png

 

7. Ctrl + E – Quick access to the search bar at the top of Teams.

Picture8.png

 

8. Ctrl + / –  See all of the commands that you can use to easily navigate to different locations, access content, or set your status.

9. :word – Type a colon “:” immediately followed by a word to discover additional emojis (e.g. :person or :apple)

Thanks for the :word functionality to express emotion. However, there seem to be some flaws when mentioning words starting with a character in use for other icons. Some examples are :d, :o and :p. How can I get the emoticon for the word :person, which starts with the already used :p character combination?

thank you! find my 10 cents here in my blogpost how I am using shortcuts with Elgato Stream Deck https://ragnarheil.de/elgato-stream-deck-and-microsoft-teams-keyboard-shortcuts/

@Harold van de Kamp  I found if you type "fast" it will work, but seems that those reserved emoji should detect that you type an extra character after the :d for example.

I'm with @Harold van de Kamp , I can't figure out how to use :person or any word that starts with p?

What is de keyboard shortcut for the new hand raise function?  Will be the next key on my stream deck. The Elagato Stream Deck and profile function in  Stream Deck is a great productivity tool to accompany me in my Teams sessions. 

Microsoft

I love up arrow ⬆ to edit the last message. Just like a CLI.

Occasional Visitor

For some reason, I can't quote a message to reply directly to the message o the Teams desktop App? Is there a shortcut for this?

Hello @Harold van de Kamp and @Rob Barker. I find I can get around this :d, :o, :p limitation by typing, say, :per in a different program (e.g., Outlook, or the command line) and then copying and pasting that back into Teams for further refinement.

Thank you @HedmanD that does work. Although it's silly we'd need to do that hack to make this work; Microsoft does need to address this issue. But thank you for teaching us this workaround!
