I'd like to use Alt+F7 to search for files in Double Commander.

But when I press Alt+F7 - the hotkey is intercepted and I am offered to move the window.
Settings - Settings manager - Keyboard - Application shortcuts doesn't show Alt+F7 to be bound to anything.

Where can I undefine Alt+F7 hot key then?

In 14.04 it is just (System) Settings -> Keyboard. Or use dash search to find "keyboard" (in your language) then move to tab "shortcuts". – Jack Miller Sep 28 '14 at 18:16
No window shortcuts show on my 14.04 machine under System Settings > Keyboard. – Lee Meador Oct 20 '14 at 18:51
