Chromebook window shortcuts

1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this:

The Alt + 1 through Alt + 8 ⁽¹⁾ Chromebook shortcut keys don’t seem to work while Figma is open as a window.

I use the Chrome shortcut tool ⁽²⁾ to pin web apps I use to my Chromebook taskbar as well as making the the web app open in a window.

Right now I can switch between all my windows but when I switch to the Figma editor, I can’t switch out, super flow killer!

I assume it’s something to do with the Figma editor since this isn’t an issue while browsing my Figma files, only when the editor is open.

I’d love to see more support for this Chrome shortcut feature so I can easily switch between Figma and other windows. (and perhaps a better icon³)


⁽²⁾ Chrome 3 dot menu > more tools > create shortcut (check open in window checkbox)


Many thanks!
