Pressing Alt+Shift to switch language opens the File menu


I was about to give Brave a go, but had to call it off within the first minute.
My system is configured (like many systems following the Windows tradition) to switch input language with Alt+Shift.
In Brave for some reason it seems like that’s how you pop up the File menu…?
Traditionally it would be Alt+F or just Alt to see available keyboard accelerators. Why diverge from this norm?

Hi @oranja,
I’m sorry for late reply. There is an open issue related to this. I added your comment to the GH issue and you can track the progress here:

Thank you,


Funny thing is… I think it actually got better in one of the updates, such that I figured it was solved already.
Now I see that the problematic behaviour is back (0.16.13, rev 7869803).

I will follow the issue on github.
Thanks @eljuno
