How To Turn Off Keyboard Shortcuts Trello

Keyboard shortcuts can greatly enhance efficiency while using Trello. Yet, there may be instances in which you would rather deactivate these shortcuts. This could be because they disrupt your workflow or you inadvertently activate them. No matter the reason, this blog will walk you through the process of disabling keyboard shortcuts in Trello.

Unfortunately, Trello does not currently have a built-in feature to disable keyboard shortcuts. But don’t worry! There is a workaround for this by using browser extensions. This guide will specifically discuss how to disable keyboard shortcuts using Google Chrome and a popular extension known as Shortkeys (Custom Keyboard Shortcuts).

Disabling Trello Keyboard Shortcuts Using Shortkeys

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do this:

  1. Open Google Chrome and visit the Chrome Web Store.
  2. In the search box, type in “Shortkeys (Custom Keyboard Shortcuts)” and hit Enter.
  3. Click on the Add to Chrome button beside the Shortkeys extension.
  4. A pop-up dialog box will appear, click on Add Extension.
  5. Once installed, find the Shortkeys icon on your Chrome toolbar and click on it.
  6. Select Options from the drop-down menu.
  7. Click on the Add button to add a new shortcut.
  8. In the Keyboard Shortcut field, input the keyboard shortcut that you want to disable in Trello.
  9. Under Behavior, select Do Nothing.
  10. Set the Activation to In all sites.
  11. Under Zones, add the domain* in the URL patterns.
  12. Finally, click on Save.

This method will effectively block the chosen keyboard shortcuts from functioning while you are using Trello.

Remember, even with keyboard shortcuts turned off, Trello remains a powerful tool for organizing work and collaborating with teams. The ability to customize your experience only enhances its functionality, so feel free to tweak and experiment to find the work style that suits you best.
