I'd love to be able to mark a topic as read quickly from the recent topics window.

@Jake Goulding The second button between the unread count and the list of recent users does that.

Hmm, sure enough! I was looking for the three dots menu.

I'm not sure if there's a specific keyboard shortcut, but you can Tab/arrow to that column, then use Up/Down to move and Enter to mark as read.

You mean you were looking for the three dots menu in the recent topics modal?

Exactly. That's the common UI element Zulip seems to use for "do some more things" and I expected that marking as read in the recent list wouldn't be a primary usecase to be promoted to its own button.

I think I also would have expected it to be on the far right, after the participants, for similar consistency reasons.
