Keyboard shortcuts aka hotkeys

I am trying to find a configuration option to enable sending keyboard shortcuts aka hotkeys to target system.
I have “send system keys” enabled in my ThinLinc client, but even Alt+Tab is switching windows on my source PC with Windows 10 instead of on my target Linux machine :man_shrugging:

Hello @johny_mnemonic,

For key combos, such as alt+tab, Thinlinc needs to be run in fullscreen mode for the keys to work in the remote session.

Kind regards,

Does switching the currently opened session from windowed to fullscreen count as well?
I tried it and it still didn’t grab my keyboard so to speak, same as when switched back to windowed mode.

Starting the session in fullscreen and then switching to a windowed mode works and keyboard is grabbed correctly, i.e. the keyboard shortcuts go to remote session only when the window is active.
So I don’t honestly understand why you do not allow keyboard grab in windowed mode if it works this good @martin

Is there a way how to enforce the resolution of the opened session, i.e. set it to 1920x1080? I have 49" screen on my desktop, so I want to have the session opened only on part of my screen.

Edit: Unfortunately it seems I tested it wrong. Or it did stop working after a while, but keyboard shortcuts are not working after switching to windowed mode and even switching back to fullscreen won’t make it working again😭 So it is basically not usable for general use outside of staying in the fullscreen whole time.

Hello @johny_mnemonic

Could you give me enough details, so I can replicate the issues you’re facing with the hotkeys, please?

Regarding the resolution, I believe you should set the resolution in your desktop environment, in Settings/Display.

Kind regards,
