Invoke serial monitor with keyboard only?

Hi all, I’m -very- new to PlatformIO, having just switched from the Arduino IDE, but I’m really loving it!

One problem I’m finding - I use the serial monitor a fair bit for debugging, so I’ve been using SHIFT-ALT-M to invoke this.

One small problem - the “PlatformIO: Serial Monitor” window that pops up doesn’t steal focus, and requires me to manually click “Start”, as the focus remains on the window behind (usually my code) so I can’t just press enter to open the monitor.

If anybody has any tips to work around this, that’d be awesome!

Have you tried to don’t close it before uploading?
