YOU CANNOT MODIFY THE HOTKEYS/KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS IN ZOOM.

Zoom doesn’t allow keyboard shortcut modifications. You can view all the shortcuts under Zoom Settings. To do that click on the gear icon at the top-right corner in the Zoom app. On the Settings menu tab, navigate to the Keyboard Shortcuts tab(Windows/Mac) or Accessibility(Linux) to view all the keyboard shortcuts.
