How to summon Quick Access from Apple Shortcuts, AppleScript or CLI?

I have a logitech mouse with quite a few buttons, everyone of them can be assigned a custom "action" (pretty much anything).

I would love to be able to summon 1Ps Quick Access window using one of these buttons. Normally I would add an Apple Shortcut to do that, but I cannot figure out how to communicate this to 1P. The app is not available in Apple Shortcuts and Script Editor doesn't see API either. Is there a CLI command or a URL to bring this window upfront?

  • Hi @Kentzo

    If you're using Logi Options+, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to a mouse button. If you assign your "Show Quick Access" shortcut, which is usually ⇧⌘Space (Shift–Command–Space), to a mouse button, it would open (or close) Quick Access when you press it.

    Give that a try and let me know how you get on. I'll be here if you need further help. :)

    Yeah, that’s an option. Would be nice to have an option without involving the keyboard.

    Hey @Kentzo:

    Thanks for following up. At this time, your best bet would be binding your mouse action to the keyboard shortcut configured to show Quick Access. With that said, I've shared your feedback with the team internally. While I can't promise anything, we use feedback like yours to help inform the future of 1Password.

  • Hey @Kentzo:

    I just wanted to follow up and let you know that there is actually a way to do this using the command line!

    Executing /Applications/ --quick-access will open Quick Access if 1Password is unlocked, or prompt to unlock 1Password and then open Quick Access if it isn't. Let me know how you get on with that!
