Steps to reproduce
cmd+w to close a tab.
The tab does not close.
- The “File” menu is blinking meaning that the shortcut is taken into account
- When I open the File menu and then press
cmd+w “Close Tab” blinks.
Same issue across all vaults, including sandbox.
I have no plugin, I reinstalled Obsidian, I deleted the .obsidian directory, no change.

Using macOS 13.2.1 and Obsidian 1.1.16,
cmd+w works as expected and closes tabs over here.
My first thought was checking in Settings > Hotkeys that “Close current tab” is set to
cmd+w, but you said it’s the same in the sandbox and with a new .obsidian directory.
I know it will take a few minutes, but if you have admin privileges on the mac, could you create a new test user in macOS and try Obsidian (test vault or sandbox is fine) in that account?
maybe you have cmd+w bind to something else system wise.
Hello, thanks for the reply.
Yes I checked, it’s the case. Also as the “menu bar” is blinking, it kinda means the shortcut is taken into account somehow.
I don’t have admin privilege unfortunately.
No, it works for all my other apps
