ComEmu window menu uses conflicting shortcut letters


  • Launch ConEmu using any shell
  • Hit the following shortcut: Alt+Space
  • Then, try hit n key (normal behavior for all program that I know of is to immediately minimize the window)
  • See that windows does not immediately minimizes as 'n' is used for both "New Console" and "Minimize".
  • So now, I need to hit n key twice and then enter or space in order to minimize the windows which is not very effective and counter intuitive.
This is really annoying as this is the only way in Windows to effectively minimize any windows.

I am using ConEmuSetup.130427 in windows 7.

Here is some useful piece of advice if you want to diagnose such issues more easily:
Re-enabling underlined keyboard shortcuts
     * Control Panel\Ease of Access\Ease of Access Center\Make the keyboard easier to use\ 
     * check "Underline keyboard..."

Accepted. As workaround, you may use special (configurable) ConEmu's shortcut for "Minimize/Restore".
