Win 10. None of the 'Win + ...' hotkeys are working for me in ConEmu. Windows intercepts them all. E.g.,

  • Start ConEmu running Bash for Windows
  • Make sure ConEmu has focus
  • press Win + w
  • Windows opens the "WINDOWS INK WORKSPACE"

Expected - ConEmu runs 'Create new console or new window...'
