Complete Netflix Keyboard Shortcuts That You Must Know!


Whenever I watch Netflix on my MacBook Air, or in my windows laptop, I use helpful Netflix keyboard shortcuts because this is suitable with my laziness 😛

Although, these keyboard shortcuts are mostly the same for windows laptop/PC and in macOS.

 

Play/Pause Screen Shortcut [Space / Enter]

This “Play/Pause” keyboard shortcut is very common and most peoples already know about it. If you are using windows OS then you must know that windows default media player and many other popular media players such as VLC have these same shortcuts for Play/Pause any video.

This is most probably very common shortcut in Netflix. If you want to “Play/Pause” then you didn’t need to move your cursor, Just once, hit space or enter to “play/pause” it, and press again, to again “Play/Pause” it.

That’s all!

Volume Up/Down Keyboard Shortcuts [Up/Down Arrow]

I hate to Up/Down volume through mouse cursor. So instead of using your mouse, you can use Netflix hotkeys to increase or decrease your volume easily.

So, if you use Up and Down arrow keys to increase or decrease the volume then you didn’t need to touch the slider that appears on the screen to change the volume.

Mute [M]

We more often prefer to stop the video rather than “Mute” the video. Personally, I prefer “Space” key to “Pause” the video rather than “Mute” because it becomes quite simple.

Although, If you want to know the hotkey to “Mute” the video then you can use “M” button to Mute your video instantly.

Full-Screen + Exit [F/Esc]

Buffering TV Shows, Movies, Web Series on the big screen. I loved to watch TV Shows and Movies on Big screen to get the exact same experience that I will get in Cineplex.

To watch your show without getting distracted from the notifications of your emails, Whatsapp, you can enter in full-screen mode by entering “F” hotkey from your keyboard.

And to minimize your screen again, press “F” key again or you can also press “Esc” key to get out from full screen.

Adjust Streaming Bitrate [Shift + Alt + Left Click]

If you want to adjust the bitrate of streaming video according to your internet speed so that your show will stream without any buffering on your internet connection then you need to press-hold “Shift-Alt-Left Click” Simultaneously so adjust it.

Due to so slow internet connection in my area, It was quite difficult to watch any movie, TV Shows, Web Shows, without buffering it. So, I adjusted the streaming bitrate and now Netflix streams videos like a charm!

  1. For a ‘updated’ post it’s sad it brings 2 month old outdated news. The Shift+Alt+Left Click OR Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S isn’t working since mid December and Netflix is closing the siege against any workarounds that extension developers are trying.
