Keyboard controls section showing controls that cannot be executed on Xbox

Hello! As you may know on the Xbox Client you can connect a keyboard and mouse and control your character via that. Well, on the controls screen there appear to be a few keybinds shown that are simply not possible to be executed.

Screenshot: Only possible by pressing the share button (Xbox Series Controller) or pressing the Xbox button and then pressing “Y” to capture screenshot. Prnt Screen does nothing in the context within the Xbox Client.

Record Video: Only possible by pressing and holding the share button (Xbox Series Controller) or pressing the Xbox button and then pressing “X” to record what happened. F12 does nothing in the context within the Xbox Client.

Graphics Level: Did nothing when pressed

Fullscreen: Games/Applications on Xbox are already fullscreen, so such keybind does nothing on the Xbox Client.

Chat: Unless there’s some exception I don’t know about, chat isn’t an option in experiences even with a keyboard attached (at least from the ones I tried.)


Issue Area: Xbox Client
Impact: Minor
Frequency: Whenever you access the “Help” section of the menu while using a keyboard and mouse.

I thought Xbox client had this but it appears the list of key binds that don’t work on Xbox includes the shift lock (mouse lock) key bind, which does nothing when pressed. No option regarding shift lock enabling in the menu even in experiences that otherwise have shift lock capabilities.

Thanks for the report! Just to confirm, we have a ticket for this in our internal database.

After initial testing of the new Xbox client, it appears that these inaccuracies still exist.
