Controls are a multitude of keys on your computer's keyboard that are required to perform various things when playing Toontown Rewritten, such as walking. Using a mouse is also needed to play the game as there are many buttons to click and navigate.

|Type a message (must have SpeedChat Plus enabled)||Create a word bubble|
|Type a dot then a message (must have SpeedChat Plus enabled)||Creates a thought bubble|
|Enter||Skips some dialog/say the message typed in the chat box|
|Type only a dot (.) then say it (must have SpeedChat Plus enabled)||Clears the word/thought bubble above your Toon's head|
- Typing a dot will only delete the Toon's previous bubble, not create a blank bubble like it happens when you press Space only.
- If you are in a room/area with a thought bubble, you will have to refresh it (type it again) periodically as any Toons who enter the room/area after you typed your thought will not be able to see it. In technical terms, this is due to a constraint within Astron that limits interest on the bubble to only those that it is initially sent to, and not to any new arrivals.
- Your Toon's walking controls are similar to the "tank controls" in other games.
- If the up (↑) and down (↓) arrow keys are held at the same time, your Toon will run forward.
- If the left (←) and right (→) arrow keys are held at the same time, your Toon will turn left.
- The ability to jump by using the Ctrl key becomes essential at a Cog headquarters later in the game. This involves bypassing obstacles or dodging an attack from a Cog boss.
- The ability to close the game by pressing command+Q on Mac was implemented to Toontown Rewritten on January 29, 2014.
