Super key not working consistently in Top bar

Hi everyone,

why does the super key not work whenever a Top bar menu is open? This feels broken to me, but it might be a design decision I simply don’t understand. To me this feels like the super key is not working consistently in the system. I would expect that the Top bar menu closes as soon as I press the super key.

Does anyone know why the behavior is like this?


Hi Alex, the issue is reported under Overview (Super key or hot corner) don't work after selecting topbar item (#5971) · Issues · GNOME / gnome-shell · GitLab

I think it’s more of an oversight or technical complication than a deliberate choice.
