Support Standard Windows shortcut keys. As a left hander, I use Shift-INS, CRTL-INS and Shift-DEL for copy, cut and paste. Why do they not work here????
Absolutely! Please support the standard Microsoft Windows shortcut keys. I'm not even left handed, just a long time Windows user - it even works in the browser I am typing this into (your new MS Edge (Chromium version)), so why not in Teams too!
I am really fed up with with losing stuff I think I've "Cut" (using Shift+Delete), only to find its not in the clipboard! e.g. when deciding to move a draft to another chat - No, it's gone and I've got to retype it all!)
I know it works with Ctrl+X, but it's just that Shift+Delete cuts for seemingly every other app in Windows (pretty much) and that is what I am used to and do it without even thinking about it, except it Teams, where it probably ends up in an expletive instead!
Update: Looks like Shift+Delete as an alternative for Cut is missed off of the Windows shortcut guidelines here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12445/windows-keyboard-shortcuts, however I've been using this since Windows 3.0, so unwise to start changing this now.
I've lost count of the number of times I have used ctrl-ins/shift-ins to copy a block of text only to discover the paste buffer still contains something from minutes ago, the text I am trying to copy has been lost, and I have to type the entire message again.

(To clarify further, shift-DEL often deletes, but does not copy to the clipboard. Ctl-X seemed to work as an alternative in cases that I tried.)

I second this. I think that the standard shortcut keys mostly and usually work in Teams, but it's not consistent. Especially while doing complex edits of chat comments, I keep getting surprised by shift-DEL not working. But sometimes it does work - I have not figured out the pattern yet.

Custom controls may look nice but may not replicate the full suite of expected behavior which comes built-in with the standard controls. "Use standard controls" has been consistent advice from Microsoft to developers for decades - literally.
