Minor System-wide Hotkey issue


Possibly appearing after upgrading to DOpus 13, I noticed this minor issue. I've gotten used to these HotKeys over the years. They mostly open a specific folder/location, in a non-system drive:


They all work as before, except the first one (Win+A). Note I have Open-Shell Menu installed (since forever) and the Windows Action Center is disabled (since forever). I believe Win+A is intended for the Action Center. Win+A would only ever work with DOpus (12 and possibly earlier), if AC was disabled.

Pressing Win+A, now:
a) Does not always bring up the desired folder (nothing happens - other times the folder does open)
b) Always brings up the Start Menu (the Open Shell one), whether the desired folder/lister is opened or not.

Furthermore, I have a keyboard with two Win keys and the behaviour above seems to happen more frequently with the left Win key (although it can happen with the other one, too).

I can change this HotKey, but perhaps something changed in DOpus 13 here?

It’s likely something else (often part of Windows) is intercepting the hotkey before Opus can see it.

Ok, thanks. Must be something specific about Win+A since all the others work, including Win+Shift+A.
