Confetti explosion when fitting frame to content

This sounds ridiculous I know, but all of a sudden when I use the Windows keyboard shortcut to fit frame to content (Ctrl + Alt + C) I get a confetti explosion from each corner of the screen, rather than the text box fitting to the content. I can still access the function from the menu and it works this way, but I miss the shortcut. Does anyone know what on earth is going on? Here's a very quick video showing the problem. I'm currently using the latest InDesign update.

Thanks so much

It's the screen recorder Loom (seen in the OP).  If you have the desktop version of the app installed CTRL + ALT + C makes confetti.

Very pretty. You've clearly got some other app (nothing to do with InDesign) that is being triggered and intercepting the shortcut key that is supposed to fit frame to content!

Did you ever find out what that was? I am having the same problem, it's not limited to Adobe software though

Ok, that's really funny.

 

It appears to be a Chrome extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/confetti-confetti-all-ove/alnpfmeemhhcfephffidoflphgnneeld....

Close, it's actually the screen recorder Loom (seen in the OP).  If you have the desktop version of the app installed CTRL + ALT + C makes confetti.
