Hotkeys when Obsidian is in background

I don’t know if it possible but, is there any way to trigger keyboard shortcuts when Obsidian is in the background?

Evernote just released their new v10-software, and it’s an Electron app. When I press Ctrl+Alt+N I get a new note window. Even though Evernote is in the background. It’s possible there soo… technically it should be possible with Obsidian, right?

For example: If I pres Ctrl+Alt+N then Obsidian should come to the foreground with a new note is created

Hey @Birgines ,

I wanted this as well, so I threw something together for this today. I don’t have it up on the community yet, as I haven’t been able to do too much testing on it yet and have only used this on MacOS.

If you give this a shot, please let me know if you have any issues!

Tried on Windows 11

When I try to activate the plugin I get an error Failed to load plugin obsidian-global-hotkeys

You can use autohotkey for this.
These are some of the scripts that I use:

Same, it fails to load in mac os.
