With photoshop open, but minimized, holding ALT and pressing any number on the top row (1 thru 0) does not register in other applications at an operating-system level.  Using the on-screen keyboard in Windows doesn't bypass this, even.

 

This has been an issue for many, many years.  Since Windows 7/whatever version of Photoshop then (CS3?  CS5? idk)

 

Super annoying to have to leave Photoshop maximized or close it in order to use irssi or finch in a terminal window elsewhere, or anywhere else alt+number is a shortcut for something.

 

Here's a report of the issue elsewhere from 2013 --

This is ONLY when Photoshop is minimized.
