After installing the .dotfiles on my new Macbook (Mojave) the keyboard combination CMD + W to close tabs or windows stopped working system wide.

I found out that when I press fn + CMD + W it works. But this is not my desired solution.

Any suggestions on how I can get CMD + W to close tabs or windows?

  • HI, Welcome to Apple.SE! What is the close tab's shortcut in File Menu of say, Safari? – ankii Aug 6 at 19:59
  • Hi, thanks! In Safari its not set, but in Chrome its CMD + W. – Lukas Hillebrand Aug 6 at 22:37

    And if you remove the someone else's dotfiles you installed? – Marc Wilson Aug 6 at 23:25
  • I tried to remove all the dotfiles and rebooted but the problem still persists. – Lukas Hillebrand Aug 7 at 7:34

Resolved by installing the dotfiles again. Still don't know what caused the problem…
