Avoiding the awkward 2 seconds after a Zoom call looking for that end button

You’ve just wrapped up your meeting, you’re saying bye to your colleagues but then there’s a second or two of awkwardness as you are fumbling to hang up the Zoom call.

Using Keyboard Maestro on macOS you can set up a macro to quickly hang up your Zoom call using a single keyboard shortcut.

If you've found this tip to be helpful, tweet at me and let me know if I can help you with any other ways to speed up your workflow.

avoiding, no way!. The best part is when they look up just before hitting 'leave' and see you looking right at them. They know that you know that they failed in their elegant attempt to leave a meeting quickly....

Anything in particular that you do in the 2 seconds to make it less awkward?

You could map exiting zoom to :q and have people wondering for ages how on earth to quit that call.
