How do I turn off cloud Jira’s keyboard shortcuts?

Q: “If I type before a cloud Jira page loads completely, Jira thinks I’m trying to use keyboard shortcuts (like ‘unassign ticket’!). This is super-dangerous. How do I fix this?

A: Turn off keyboard shortcuts in cloud Jira by following these two steps:

  1. From any cloud Jira page, type a questionmark. This should bring up the Keyboard Shortcuts window:
Cloud Jira Keyboard Shortcuts pop-up window

2. Turn off the “Keyboard shortcuts are enabled” toggle.
