Keypress not work when full screen

My english is poor, this is from google translation :sweat_smile:

OS (Win10,64):
PsychoPy version (3.2.4):
Standard Standalone? (y)
What are you trying to achieve?:
in a loop, after fixation,press key to end video playing, and feedback different pictures according to keypress right or wrong

What did you try to make it work?:

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
it works when it running non-full-screen.
but keypress does not work when running full-screen, until Click the mouse while the video is playing

That is highly unusual.

But you don’t have a mouse component, so how is any click being responded to at all?

You should show us a screenshot of the settings in your keyboard component.

thank you for ur reply


The result is the same if the allowed keys$ is empty

Don’t know if it matters:
my screen resolution is 1920*1080 125%
in experiment settings,window size(pixels) default value is [1536, 864]
and:
window size(pixels) [1536, 864] work
window size(pixels) [1920, 1080]work
full-screen window 125% or 100% not work


in settings, although I did not tick the show mouse, the mouse show after first fixation. In other words, mouse show when the first video plays, and keypress work until I click the mouse
