zwift-hotkeys is made primarily with the following objectives:

  • Add hotkeys for actions which would otherwise require use of a mouse.
  • Add hotkeys for navigating between riders when in fan view and for giving Ride On’s.
    Add hotkeys for rearranging the Zwift main window using keyboard only.
  • Besides this the zwift-hotkeys.ahk script contains a framework for detecting and displaying info about current view, course and dirdection based on evalation of pixel colour patterns (toggle this with Ctrl+W hotkey)

You can find more details about the various hotkeys in this List of hotkeys in zwift-hotkeys

See the zwift-hotkeys FAQ, Tips, and Tricks page for troubleshooting tips and tricks.

Note: zwift-hotkeys.ahk may not work when Zwift in fullscreen mode. I have not tested that at all.

zwift-hotkeys is automatically closed when Zwift is closed. All windows with a title starting with ‘ZwiftOverlay’ are closed, too.

  1. Great work on this script! I got N, B and R working for giving RideOns, but Backspace for Back button does not work.

    Could it be because I’m running Ultrawide 3440×1440 ?

    1. You should try to download the new version 16 – it makes backspace click the Back button in ultrawide windows, too.

  2. Hey,

    I am having trouble to get the hotkeys to work. I have installed accordingly with your guide, (so I get the hotkeys menu when in zwift) but the keys are just not working for me. Any thoughts of what I am doing wrong?


    1. My first guess would be that Zwift is running elevated (as Administrator) because of the recent update. That can cause the problem. How did that happen? When Zwift updates it elevates Zwift Launcher which in turn – when it starts Zwift – makes Zwift run elevated. It is a simple thing to fix: Find the Zwift icon in the system tray in the Windows taskbar, right click it, and choose Exit. Next time you launch Zwift it will run in normal mode again.

      Let me know if that doesn’t help.

      Remember to run Zwift in window mode, otherwise some of the hotkeys will fail.

  3. Is there shortcuts for mac users? Example there are not an function keys on a mac so unable to give a ride on.

    Thank you gang.

    1. Zwift has the same built-in hotkeys in the Windows and macOS versions.
      The zwift-hotkeys utility is only for Windows and I’m not aware of anything similar for macOS.

  4. Can’t seem to make it work. Zwift-Login and Zwift-Preferences work great, but Zwift-Hotkeys is resisting all attempts. Windows 10 x64 Pro, running AHK. Thanks for the cool tools, anyway.

  5. Hello, is there a way this could work with a Apple TV?
    Would be nice, if we could connect a key-board (wired or BT)
    Or any otherway?

    Thanks in Advance,
