Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts perform operations in Mattermost to help you navigate through channels and make a more efficient use of your keyboard. See also slash commands for alternate ways to help carry out actions with a keyboard instead of a mouse.

To display a list of available keyboard shortcuts, type CTRL+/ (CMD+/ on Mac), or /shortcuts.

Note

Though Mattermost keyboard shortcuts support standard languages and keyboard layouts, they may not work if you use keymapping that overwrites default browser shortcuts.
