Use line breaks in Zoom Chat on your Mac

Did you know you can use line breaks in Zoom chat on your Mac?!  I’m willing to accept that I’m the last person to know this …


In early 2023, Zoom updated its chat features to include a standard Shift + Enter keyboard shortcut, as many other apps use! They’ve also added features like threads, emojis for messages, and animated emoji reactions.

Now if I could only get them to not rearrange my screens in an unpredictable and unhelpful manner …

Happy Friday!

Of course, it’s NOT Alt+Enter or Shift+Enter as you’d expect, like every other app 🙄

The correct shortcut keys are Control+Enter to insert some refreshing clean space into comments, instead of the usual wall of characters we’ve all tolerated before.
