AMD ReLive interfering with Ctrl + Shift + [letter] shortcuts in other apps

Jump to solution

I was having issues with my Visual Studio and Notepad++ because a commonly used shortcut stopped working. Ctrl+Shift+L is a delete line shortcut. ReLive doesn't use this exact shortcut but it seems to capture and block the shortcut from passing to other apps - even when ReLive is disabled/turned off (but still installed).

I raised this issue with Microsoft thinking it was an issue with VS2017

If you disable the 2 ReLive background processes: AMD ReLive: Desktop Overlay and AMD ReLive: Host Application - in that order otherwise they restart

As soon as that is done, Ctrl+Shift+L will work again.

Please fix, otherwise ReLive will have to be uninstalled.

Hi,

Since my original post I actually found out how to disable the shortcut but didn't post anything here because there was little interest in this issue (apart from one unhelpful reply ). However, you seem to be genuinely just as annoyed as I was, so hope this helps.

You need to go to Gaming > Global Settings > Performance Monitoring > Toggle Performance Logging Hotkey

You will see this is bound to Ctrl + Shift + L (so the shortcut is used - just buried).

To remove the shortcut (not an obvious process at all!) you need to click the Toggle Performance Logging Hotkey button, it will then ask to enter your hotkey, you then press delete - that is Del (not backspace, not esc or anything else - the Del key).

Congratulations, you now have now removed that annoying shortcut and can use ReLive if you so wish.

God knows what I've ended up logging because of this hotkey.

You know you can click on any of those hotkeys and reassign it to whatever you want.

As said above, the exact shortcut isn't even used. ReLive is intercepting ALL Ctrl + Shift + [any letter] key combos and interfering with other applications' shortcuts.

That does not happen with mine.

There has already been a few update releases since the original post in this thread, yet this problem persists.  The only solution appears to be to wholly uninstall the drivers package.  Whether you install the full Adrenalin Edition or the AMD Minimal Setup version, and opt to *not* install the AMD ReLive,  the AMD ReLive: Desktop Overlay and AMD ReLive: Host Application are still installed, are running as active processes, and still function to: as ritchie says above, "As said above, the exact shortcut isn't even used. ReLive is intercepting ALL Ctrl + Shift + [any letter] key combos and interfering with other applications' shortcuts."

Follow up:  I installed the Adrenalin Edition 18.5.2 Optional version and chose this time to *not* install the System.  Either this is the work around, or AMD has actually addressed the issue in this optional release, but neither the AMD ReLive: Desktop Overlay nor the AMD ReLive: Host Application are running.  I restarted my system twice to be sure.  I was also never given the option to check/uncheck the install ReLive which may be for the reason I chose to not install the System.

Thank you for the follow up.  This has been a thorn in my side for weeks.  I'll try this on the next update.  You've been a big help from the initial post simply by opening this thread.

I totally didn't waste 3 hours today trying to figure out this... I'M REALLY PISSED.

I think the worst offender on this is registering TWO global hotkeys on windows and actually not triggering any popup, notification or any kind of user feedback when I actually press the key CTRL+SHIFT+L and CTRL+SHIFT+O combos anywhere. It's totally freaking silent.

I remember having a similar issue with the "Radeon Overlay Hotkey" a long time ago, but at least that generated the freaking Overlay while in a game.

Just went through the painstaking process of creating an account for this site just to tell you thanks for posting the solution. I already spent quite enough time trying to track down the program itself but finding this setting and how to clear out the shortcut (instead of entering another one) would have taken forever!

Again, much appreciated!

Thank you for explaining how to fix this.

Please update the app, AMD!
