46 Control Functions

Control (ctrl) functions are shortcuts that help users navigate and work more efficiently. The entire list of control functions can be accessed by inputting “Ctrl + Period (.)” (For Mac users, “Ctrl” is equivalent to “Command”). 


An image of the list of all Teams-specific Ctrl functions.

A function that is highly recommended would be the “toggle background effects.” By inputting “Ctrl + Shift + P” (“Command + Shift + P” for Mac users), users can either blur or customize their backgrounds in a video call which can increase their privacy.
