How to make 1pw drop to background after copying username or password?

Is this option available somewhere in the settings?

It would a great option to have when copying usernames/passwords from the desktop app. Currently alt-tabbing is needed each time between windows to input information from clipboard.

1Password Version: 8.4.0
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: W10 20H2
Referrer: forum-search:after copy

    Hi @vssaarinen!

    Have you tried out our Quick Access feature? The Quick Access overlay can be called with Ctrl + Shift + Space, and will close after you copy a username or password. You can read a bit more about Quick Access here.

  • Yeah it kind of achieves the same thing and would work well enough I guess. Thank you for the suggestion and I'll give a go.

    I wonder how one would go about changing the commands to copy username and/or password? Atm they are bound to "ctrl+c" and "ctrl+shift+c". Is it possible to modify those commands to whatever combinations suit me best?

    Hi @vssaarinen, my understanding is that these are not currently not customizable, but I'll follow up on this in extra detail for you and see what I can find. Maybe there's a customer feature request we can put in here for you! 😃
