I’d like to be able to set a shortcut key to close the current email window.
I spend most of my work day in a web browser, opening and closing tabs. For all the browsers I use, Ctrl-W will close the current tab.
When I am in eM Client, I often open up emails, read them, and then want to close the email window. So my muscle memory naturally tries Ctrl-W to close the email window, but it does not work. Then I remember, “Oh, yeah, I have to use Alt-F4, the windows shortcut key for closing a window.” And on my system, I have to press Fn+Alt+F4 because of how Dell Keyboards work… It’s kind of an awkward keyboard shortcut, but it’s doable. The main thing is that my muscle memory wants that to be ctrl-W, like closing a browser tab. So having to remember ALT-F4 takes me out of my workflow.
It sounds like a small thing, I know, but it bugs me multiple times a day.
So I’d like to request that there be a new shortcut key option for “close current window” which people can map to a shortcut key.
I see that there was a similar request for this back in 2018. So there are definitely more people who would appreciate this feature.
