1password windows shortcut

Hello, I'm using 1password for Windows (my current version is 7.6.797). I usually use Ctrl+Shift+\ key combination to open the 1password window.
Sometimes using Visual Studio Code hotkey Ctrl+\ causes 1password window to open and it won't let me use the VS Code hotkey until I enter the master password for 1password. Note - I don't use any plugins for VS Code or anything like this - it seems that 1password incorrectly handles the Ctrl+\ hotkey.
This issue might be not related specifically to VS Code but it's the only app in which I'm using this hotkey.
This gets pretty frustrating at times.

Please advise.

  • Nevermind, I just found there is a separate shortcut in 1pasword that uses Ctrl+\ combination.

    Hi @ko_vasilev!

    Indeed, Ctrl + \ typically opens the 1Password browser extension. If other apps are using the same shortcut, you can change it so there is no interference :+1:
