Default "Navigate back" hotkey is overridden by a Windows 10 command

Steps to reproduce

Press “Ctrl + Alt + <-” while Obsidian is opened.

Expected result

Navigate to the previous file.

Actual result

The windows screen flips sideways.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: v0.8.12

I am not sure there is anything we can do about this.


I’m pretty sure this is not a Windows 10 command, but an Intel HD Graphics driver shortcut. Try the following: open Control Panel, search for Intel Graphics or something like this, in the settings section of it disable any shortcuts.

For me, this Obsidian shortcut works as expect. Not a bug.
