Skype Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are combinations of two or more keys that, when pressed, can be used to do a task that would typically need a mouse or other pointing device. The keyboard shortcuts described here refer to the United States Skype for Business (Lync) keyboard layout. Keys on other layouts might not correspond exactly to the keys on a U.S. keyboard.

These keyboard shortcuts relate to the feature areas of the Skype for Business (Lync) user interface (UI). So, for example, you’ve have to be in a contact card for the Esc key to close the contact card.

Tab and Shift+Tab are common ways of moving through any UI. Tab moves through the UI in order, whereas Shift+Tab moves through it in reverse order.

Some features might not be available for your account. We’ve indicated these.
