Keyboard Shortcuts

  • Updated

Interact with others and control your presence on Gather conveniently with keyboard shortcuts. 

You can view the full list of shortcuts below or by going to Menu > Settings > User > Keyboard Shortcuts while in your Gather space. You can also use the shortcut (?) to open the list. 

These shortcuts are based on the English QWERTY keyboard layout. If using an AZERTY layout or other arrangement, the shortcut will use the character in the same physical placement on your keyboard. (For example, pressing 'w' to dance instead of 'z'.)
