Keyboard shortcuts and their functions


Frame allows you to seamlessly access a real PC in a browser, however, there are some limitations to how the platform interprets specific keyboard shortcuts. Since the system is being streamed from the cloud to the user's local browser, any input made on your local machine must first go through your OS, then to your browser, and finally to Frame. These layers can obstruct some inputs made to your Frame session. Below, we'll outline some known limitations of certain key combinations and their alternatives to help you more efficiently navigate your Frame session. ### Alt + Tab Alt + Tab is often used in Windows environments to cycle through open application windows. This specific key combination will only pass through to the OS and cycle through your local application windows. If you would like to cycle through application windows within the Frame session, you can press Alt + ` instead.

Using this key combination while in a Frame session will cause your local browser to react. ### ESC Many applications (CAD applications, for example) use the ESC key to quit particular actions.

This combination will not be passed to the Frame session. ### Ctrl + Tab There are a number of applications that support multiple child windows for working on several files at the same time. Ctrl + Tab is frequently used as a keyboard shortcut to quickly toggle between the child windows in an application. When running a Frame session, this key combination will be received by the user's local browser, causing it to cycle through local browser tabs. ### Alt + M In environments that have a Launchpad, using the Alt + M key combination in a session will resize the session to a "small view." This key combination will not be passed to any applications running in the Frame session. This can pose an issue for users running Blender, as Blender uses the same key combination to merge vertices.
