How to reset Keyboard Shortcuts?

I wanted to change the "Fill Login or Show 1Password" keyboard shortcut to Option-Command-Backslash (the Cmd-\ global conflicts with Emacs). I went into Preferences, clicked to record a shortcut, and pressed option-cmd-backslash. I got this error message:

My preferred outcome would be to set the shortcut as specified. I would settle for being able to reset the keyboard shortcuts entirely.


1Password Version: 70600006 (MAS)
Extension Version: 7.6
OS Version: macOS 10.15.7
Sync Type: 1password

  • I tried:

    defaults delete com.agilebits.onepassword7 "ShortcutRecorder BrowserActivation"
    defaults delete com.agilebits.onepassword7 "ShortcutRecorder GlobalActivation"

    I fully quit 1Password (from the Menubar icon) and relaunched, but it appeared to have no affect: the Preferences pane still says "Click to record shortcut" for "Show 1Password" and "Fill Login or Show 1Password".

    Hi @mfisher911! Welcome to the forum!

    I wonder where the Cmd+C shortcut is coming from, if you are trying to record another one. Can you please post a screenshot of the Preferences tab under 1Password Preferences > General?

    The keyboard shortcuts are probably also in the preferences file in the ~/Library/Group Container/ file.

  • Thanks, @rudy! I fully quit 1Password, removed that file, and relaunched. After this, the original settings were back in place.
