I tried getting my windows key to work with obsidian many times, but it stops. Seems like there is a glitch.
Did you ever solve this? If you want some help, please post your “Show debug info”.
And maybe also, what language/region in your keyboard set to?
Does it happen in the Sandbox help vault too?
Do you have any hotkey remapping? For example, I have an Apple keyboard. So in Windows, I remap Command and Option to be opposite using PowerToys, so the “Windows” key is in the middle. But if I ever run an app as administrator, then that mapping gets temporarily lost. (Not saying this is your issue. But it might be a clue.)
@rigmarole I have the same exact problem, I would post my “show debug info” but I don’t know where to find it. Anyway my keyboard is set to Italian. I do use a remapping to have easier access to characters like ` and ~, but the windows key doesn’t work even with the standard keyboard or in the sandbox vault.
Help > Show Debug Info
thanks to @anon63144152 here’s the debug info:
SYSTEM INFO: Obsidian version: v1.1.16 Installer version: v1.0.0 Operating system: Windows 10 Home 10.0.22623 Login status: not logged in Insider build toggle: off Live preview: on Legacy editor: off Base theme: dark Community theme: none Snippets enabled: 0 Restricted mode: off Plugins installed: 1 Plugins enabled: 1 1: Excalidraw v1.7.25
I did try to disable excalidraw, but the problem presists
The installer is out of date, as is Obsidian itself. Might help to grab the latest versions:
just tried that but still no luck. two things I noticed though are that
- I use windows 11 but the debug info shows windows 10
- even though the windows key does nothing the virtual keyboard still detects it when I press it
Hope someone can help.
alright looks like reinstalling the whole program fixed it… Alas, the solution was much simpler than I thought, yet it never crossed my mind
