Manage your keyboard layout

On your desktop, Slack will automatically detect the layout of your keyboard to make sure that the app is in sync. If for some reason Slack can't detect what keyboard that you're using, you’ll have the option to manually adjust your keyboard preference.

Note: The preference to select your keyboard layout can only be set if Slack can't detect the keyboard that you're using.

Select your keyboard layout

  1. From your desktop, click your profile picture in the sidebar.

Tip: If you use keyboard shortcuts to navigate Slack, there are a few that may differ depending on the keyboard layout that you’ve chosen.
