command-tab, command-q, mac connecting to mac

Michael Roman 2 years ago updated 10 months ago 5

Connectwise v6.5.16358.6610

command-tab, command-q do NOT get passed through to the mac being controlled.

command-q quits screenconnect on the controlling mac instead of whatever app is running on the controlled mac

command-tab switches apps on the controlling mac instead of switching apps on the controlled mac

Other command key shortcuts work as expected

this is still an annoying issue...

Hi Michael,

My understanding is that this is not fixable. I could be wrong but-

command-Q and command-tab 

are reserved by the operating system to only trigger on local machines. Yes I know it might work on ARD but I suspect that's Apple giving themselves features that they won't allow others to have...

AnyDesk (http://anydesk.com) passes command-Q and command-tab - I JUST successfully tested it. As I recall, Logmein (http://anydesk.com) also passed command-key sequences to the remote machine, so it is not just Apple that can do this.

ok, thanks for the correction Michael. to be honest I haven't expected that functionality in any remote product and I changed my behaviour- I use the mouse instead of key combos as I've been caught too many times accidentally closing the app. But I would agree it would be nice to have, cheers

when I use Windows, I use the mouse instead of key combos.

when I use Mac, I use key combos a lot more. I wish I had  dollar for every time I've disconnected from a remote session when what I really wanted was to quit an app on the remote Mac...
