If you use WhatsApp on your computer, chances are that you’re trying to be more productive. You’re trying to stay focused on whatever tasks you’re faced with, while staying connected at the same time.
So, we have something that should make it more seamless. With these WhatsApp Web shortcuts, you don’t have to spend too much time just moving about the WhatsApp Web interface or looking for emojis.
1. Press Ctrl + F To Find A Conversation
Once you have WhatsApp Web window open, you can press Ctrl + F to navigate to the search bar and find a conversation. Just type in a person’s name press enter, and you can start typing. This way you don’t have to scroll through a long list of names, or try to find the search bar.
2. Press Ctrl + Shift + ] To Go To The Next Chat
When you’re trying to have multiple conversations simultaneously, it can be annoying clicking between chats. So, instead, you can just use the shortcut above to switch to the next chat on your list.
3. Press Ctrl + Shift + [ To Go To The Previous Chat
This shortcut works hand in hand with the previous one the list to allow you to navigate between chats without ever taking your hand off the keyboard.
4. Press : To Insert An Emoji
If you use WhatsApp Web regularly, which I’m going to assume you do because you’re reading this article, then you know how tedious it can be to find the right emoji. Even when you know what you’re looking for, going through the emoji list is torture. What you can do instead, is type “:” followed by name of the emoji that you’re looking for. So, for a smiley face, you can just type in “:smile” and you’ll get all the emojis that fit that description.
Pro tip, you can just type in a letter or two for a wider range of emoji suggestions to choose from.
