alt+<number key> stops working in irssi and putty under Windows

I have no idea why this happens. I have not been able to fix the underlying issue, but .. do you have photoshop open?

It turns out photoshop interrupts the alt+number keys globally, so even if you have putty open, changing windows with alt+<number key> won’t work. Closing photoshop makes everything work again.

Weird.

  1. Oh man is this satisfying to find the answer to. It’s been so extremely frustratingly random .
    Turns out it’s just very random occasions I keep photoshop and irssi+putty open at the same time.
