You can view and edit keyboard shortcuts in your Accessibility settings.

Editing Shortcuts

You can edit a shortcut by clicking on the shortcut and then pressing the shortcut key that you would like to use. 

Some of the shortcuts can be used as global shortcuts, meaning they will work even when Zoom is not in focus. To enable a shortcut globally, check the option next to the shortcut.
