Microsoft Teams meetings can get a bit busy. One of the many ways to stay efficient during these meetings and make the most of the limited time at hand is to try and use keyboard shortcuts. So, here are the top seven Microsoft Teams shortcuts that you need to start using now to make the most out of your conversations:
1: Mute/ Unmute yourself in a meeting: When in a meeting, especially in the ones with a large number of participants, muting and unmuting yourself at the right time is the key to having an effective conversation. A lot of people prefer being on mute unless they have something to share. Mute and unmute buttons can come in handy for such people.
2: Turn the webcam on or off: Having meetings amid the pandemic has made the office goers wary of keeping their webcams off all the time. Yet, there are times when slips up happen and people forget to turn their webcams off before joining a meeting. For such moments, there are shortcuts.
3: Start a new chat: To start a new chat in Microsoft Teams: hover near the name of the contact with whom you want to start a new chat and press Control + N.
4: Attaching a new file: One of the ways using which you can attach a file in a chat is by scrolling to the bottom of a chat, looking for the paperclip icon and then attaching the required file.
