Hey!

I am using a program where I need to hold the cmd-key for several seconds. Each time I do that a window of Security and Privacy comes up. I can't manage to find a way to disable it. Only to increase the time until the windows ups up. I got Sierra. Anyone got any clue?

All the best,
Elias

What program? Check in preferences/keyboard.

What program? Check in preferences/keyboard.

The pop-up window is part of the Mac, not the program. It happens anytime, just that in this program I need to hold the cmd-button down. I checked the keyboard shortcuts section but found no shortcut only using the cmd-key. Where is it? I wonder

Do you have any background apps that could be hijacking the keyboard input?
Screen shot would be helpful of the popup.

Edit: the whole screen, not just the popup.

Holding down the CMD key doesn't bring anything up for me, in any app and regardless of how long I keep it held down. You are potentially running some keyboard/snippet helper that is making that happen..

Thanks. I discovered it was a background app that I haven't been using in ages! Into the bin. Solved everything.
