Spotlight Participant Keyboard Shortcut

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
We use Zoom conferencing for videoconferences in sign language, thus we use Spotlight feature quite a lot, so that all participants could see clearly the person who is signing to the camera. The person who operates the whole meeting has to be very quick and uses many of keyboard shortcuts that are included in the Zoom client. The challenge for him is to pick a participant for spotlighting because there is no shortcut for that.

Describe the solution you’d like
Just left-click mouse on a participant and then pressing keyboard shortcut, such as Ctrl+S. If I looked correctly, this shortcut doesn´t exist yet for PC.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
Now we have to left-click mouse on a participant, then right-click and choose from the context menu feature Spotlight. The problem is that the context menu is not always the same since it differs depending on the participant meeting rights.

We understand, that since COVID-19 outbreak you probably have a big amount work, so we appreciate all the efforts to support videoconferencing services. Thanks a lot!

Hi @tomeknawrat! Thanks for sharing - I’ve added this as a feature request.

Feel free to also share any feedback at!

Hi, I would also really appreciate being able to quick select a person to spotlight with my keybord. I work for a university theatre department and this would make all our classes much easier come September when we are again doing scenes and plays online. Thousands of university and high school theatre programs world wide would benefit from the host being able to quick key between two (or more) spotlight student actors while the rest of the class watches those students perform.
