Question / Help Is there a way to block other programs from receiving key presses from hotkeys?


New Member
I want to use hotkeys, but I hate that I always type something when I use them. I wonder if there is an option so only OBS receives the key press. For example when I have a hotkey on the "a" key and I press it, I want OBS to do whatever the hotkey should do, but I don't want to actually type "a" in the focused window.

I don't think there's any way for OBS to prevent other apps from receiving keystrokes if OBS isn't the app in focus.
