I use outlook.com (also called OWA) for email and calendar. I often book meetings that require Zoom links. I want to speed up the time it takes to click on the zoom meeting link, given that is hidden in the Outlook web interface. Ideally, without the mouse!
The best goal would be to press a keyboard shortcut that would be same as clicking the Add a Zoom Meeting
Is this possible?

Hi @DaveRook, welcome to the Zoom Community.
I run through some testing in the lab and this was the quickest way to schedule a Zoom meeting I could find.
Add Zoom Add-in to Calendar surface
Create a new Zoom Meetings
Let me know if this is any quicker than your current process?
If so, don’t forget to mark the reply as an accepted solution!

Did the above reply help to improve your experience creating a Zoom Meeting from the Outlook web client?
Let me know if I can provide any further assistance?

I have the same problem, is there any solution? Does Zoom realize that MS is deliberately making it difficult to use Zoom on Outlook?

Hi I have a problem with the Outlook add-in. When I click the zoom icon in my calendar invite, it just hangs.
It will just sit there and do nothing. When I click the 3 dots and choose zoom settings, it hangs again.
I've tried removing the add-in and adding it again.

Here's another screenshot of the settings window hanging.

I solved this by creating a browser plugin which could simulate the clicks. Now, I press ctrl+shift+z and it creates a zoom meeting in my calendar automatically. I still have to put my password in for SSO but it's so much quicker now.
