WhatsApp is the most important application for chatting and direct communication. But it is no secret to anyone that the experience of using it on the PC is not the best, especially if it is compared with competing applications such as Telegram, or even compared to an application from the same company, which is Messenger. Among the shortcomings of the WhatsApp application on the PC is that it only works when the phone on which the number is registered is connected to the Internet.
Although the experience is not perfect, there are some tips and tricks that will greatly improve your user experience. These tips will be ideal if you are using WhatsApp on PC through the browser and not through the Windows application.
WhatsApp keyboard shortcuts عبر
A large number of platforms, applications, and websites offer keyboard shortcuts. What is meant is a shortcut that you execute by pressing more than one button at the same time, just like Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V for copying and pasting. Here are the most important keyboard shortcuts in WhatsApp on the web:
Mute WhatsApp: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+M, where M stands for Mute
– Send the conversation to the archive: Ctrl+Alt+E
Delete the entire chat: Ctrl+Alt+Backspace (back button)
– Pin chat: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+P, where P stands for Pin
– Search within WhatsApp: Ctrl+Alt+/ (the dash above the numbers)
– Search within the chat itself: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F
– Start a new conversation: Ctrl+Alt+N
Create a new group: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+N
One of the most important points to keep in mind is to quickly implement the shortcut and press the buttons in the same order above.
Open more than one account on the same device
It is easy to use more than one WhatsApp account on your smartphone, this is known, whether through the built-in options in the phones that allow cloning the WhatsApp application, or by relying on the WhatsApp Business application.
In order to do the same on the computer, you have more than one solution, the first is to open the account in the Incognito / Private window, but as soon as you close this window, the account will be closed and you will need to log in every time, so this solution works only when it is a one-time use. Conversely, if you want to use a second account permanently, you should solve one of the following simple solutions:
1- Open an account on the browser and an account on the Windows application
2- Open an account on your main browser and an account on another browser
3- Using the Containers feature in Firefox to separate the records of each tab
No blue ticks
Read Receipts is a feature in WhatsApp that allows both parties to know whether the other party has read the message or not. However, on WhatsApp Web, you can read messages freely without this indicator appearing, simply by relying on the WAToolKit extension.
Classify and arrange messages professionally
The main application screen is usually full of messages and conversations, some of them are work, some are personal conversations, some are messages you haven’t answered, and some are official messages..
The WhatsApp Tabs application, which comes in the form of an extension for Chrome, allows you to divide conversations into tabs according to the type of message, which is shown in the following image. You can also download the WhatsApp Tabs extension for free.
Activate the dark mode and change the background
The dark mode in WhatsApp has always been waiting, and previously we used applications and tools to activate it, but now it is officially available if you do not know, and activating it is very simple. Just head to the main menu, then to settings, and finally to appearance, and from there choose dark.
In addition, if you are tired of the application wallpaper on the web, you can simply change it. All you have to do is go back to settings, then to the chat wallpaper option, and finally choose the wallpaper.
