Additional information

It’s similar to Obsidian URI - new action silent flag not working correctly and it seems from comment that it works properly on other OSes, but on Windows I still have this issue.

According to, the silent option is for this:

silent (optional) include this parameter if you don’t want to open the new note.

It will create a new note in the vault without focusing it or opening that note/tab.
