At least on European keyboards (don’t know about the others) there is no dedicated backslash button. Therefore I can not use Ctrl + \ to show or hide the UI of the Figma web app.
Keyboard combinations with Alt are not working.

Ctrl + P is a universal shortcut you can use to bring this menu up as an alternative to Ctrl + \
Ctrl + P is for Ctrl + /, not Ctrl + \. The other alternative to Ctrl + \ is
Ctrl + . (dot). And you can create custom key bindings on windows using Auto Hot Key or similar apps. I use Better Touch Tool for that on Mac.

You can right click on the background beside your canvas to access the menu to hide or reveal the tools panel.
Try cmd + # (the key with ’ and # near the return key) , this works for me on my European keyboard.
@Aleksander_Klajderic There’s no EU keyboard, but plenty of different keyboard layouts worldwide. Every layout has a different key combination to show/hide UI.
Check these shortcut cheat-sheets and if your keyboard layout is missing, let me know and I can try to add or at least tell you how to show/hide ui.
