SUPPORTED PLATFORMS

Zwift supports a wide range of Apple and Windows computers. For the best in game experience, you’ll want a good graphics card or GPU. The better the graphics card, the more frames per second (FPS) your computer can process, and the higher resolution and smoother graphics you’ll enjoy.

If you’re running a Windows desktop computer with a poor FPS, try upgrading the graphics card. There are many reasonable options available. There are also some great purpose-built gaming PC’s on the market that won’t break the bank, like the Alienware Alpha.

You can use the keyboard for most of the things that the App can do.

Key # 0 = brings camera to a panoramic view (of currently selected view)

Those are helpful thanks :)    finding a rider via a name search would be very useful if i could do that via a keyboard shortcut…as friends dont always show up in the nearby rider list. :slight_smile:
