rberq Posted August 29, 2020 Report Share Posted August 29, 2020 Since my hands are most often on the keyboard, I prefer using keys to using the mouse. One of my most-used macros closes the current application. If Firefox is active, it types Ctrl-w to close the active tab. Otherwise, it clicks in the upper right corner of the active application’s window. The macro is activated by the keypad minus key, and it’s generally quicker to press the key than to manually maneuver the mouse or to press that awkward Alt-F4 combination. Here’s the problem: In many Windows 10 system screens, the key is ignored so the macro doesn’t run. Other hotkey combinations are also ignored – like Ctrl-Alt-w that runs a macro to display all open windows. Is there a Windows 10 setting, or some trick, to overcome this issue?
