After sharing the previous suggestion about how to use WhatsApp’s Click To Chat to save personal notes, we would like to share all shortcuts available on WhatsApp Web, compatible with the latest updates:

CTRL + ALT + N = Create a new group.

CTRL + ALT + P = Open your own WhatsApp profile.

CTRL + ALT + , = Open WhatsApp Settings.

CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + / = Search chats and messages.

CTRL + ALT + F = Search messages in the current chat.

CTRL + ALT + E = Archive the current chat.

CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + M = Mute the current chat.

CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + U = Mark as unread the current chat.

CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + H = Contact the WhatsApp support.

CTRL + ALT + BACKSPACE = Delete the current chat.

CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + [ = Open the previous chat.

CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + ] = Open the next chat.

These are the current known shortcuts. Surely you don’t need all them, but some shortcuts might be useful to memorize, for example the one to search messages.
