  • is there a hotkey to show the menu?

    sometimes i'm watching a game, and i want to go back to menu, to chat, or whatever
    i'm wondering if there's a hotkey?

    i know there's the button in the top left, but it's annoying to click, and also when you get steam messages, the little popup thing blocks it.

    so yeah

    is there a hotkey? (if there isn't there should be)

        I agree there should be a hotkey for the menu.

          There should be hotkey and "Esc" is the best one for it IMO

              Though, not the Escape key.
              ESC is used for other things in the game itself.
              If you have the shop open and press esc it will close the shop. I think it should work with other menus too, like battle log, and the scoreboard when you press the button at the top, to quickly escape out of those menus and back into the game.

              I'm still for adding a shortcut key, but I think it should be a bindable option.
              This ain't ova.

                Option for opening the menu? Yes please.
                You can make it F10 like in the original DotA.
                I am sure some purist will be happy about that but more realistically, you will let us bind it.

                +1 for giving us a menu button hotkey.
                Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
