Make it possible to close vault

Use case or problem

I work with more than one vault and I would like to be able to quickly close vaults with a keyboard shortcut to keep my desktop uncluttered and focus better. There is a keyboard shortcut for “Open another vault”, but not for “Close this vault”, which is unexpected (asymmetry).

Proposed solution

Add a shortcut to “Close existing vault”.

Current workaround (optional)

I have to move my hands away from they keyboard and use the mouse to close vaults.


I use a custom BetterTouchTool (on a Mac) for that – the standard ⇧⌘W key closes the vault window. But I agree that it would be better to have option exist natively.

How did you configure BetterTouchTool to close the vault window? I’m not familiar with that tool but I ask in case I can find a similar workaround.

@juan I’m using Keyboard Maestro to map ⇧⌘W to close the vault window. If you’re familiar with Keyboard Maestro, it’s easy to do. Just set the hot key you want and use the “Move or Click Mouse” action like this:
