Photoshop 21.0.1: Actions no longer run via keyboard shortcut unless an active document is open

Our company relies upon a number of batch operation scripts (.jsx). The most recent update (PS 21.0.1) breaks a very convenient feature.

What we want fixed
- Run an action via keyboard shortcut from the home screen of Photoshop (no documents open). [1 user operation]

What we're dealing with
- The action needs to be run via the menu (File > Scripts > Browse > Find Script)  [4+ user operations]
- Open a document, then use the keyboard shortcut (this doesn't work for batch operations unless the script is altered to close the active document before running)

This seems to be a cache bug of some sort. I was able to get it working via the Command button, but it won't work with Shift. Whereas some of our other users have no problem.

Does it work (at least as a workaround) to disable Preferences > General... "Auto show the Home Screen"

Can you confirm what OS/version you're running on? On macOS, all the combinations I used worked.

As stated above, I'm expecting this is a cache (or some other local file) related error that's probably tough to reproduce. It smells that way to me since adjusting the assignment from the Shift to Command button was a successful workaround. But when it was changed back to Shift, the error occurred again.

If you need more detailed information (such as a screen recording), I can still reproduce the error on my end when I disable your workaround

Yeah. A screen recording might help. Thanks.

Runs properly using shift from 0:27 onward

Whereas 'command' works without adjusting the home-screen option.

This should be fixed in the 21.1 update that went out last night.

I encountered the same problem. I'm having a new imac. After installing the photoshop to it, the shortcut keys for the actions is not working. I searched but none came to fix the issue. Then I suspect that the imac's internal function keys is affecting it so what I did is I went to system preference of imac> tap keyboard> keyboard tab> check Use F1, F2, etc keys as standard function keys
