How do I disable/enable combination keyboard shortcuts like alt+space and alt+F10).

  • What are these keys shortcut for? – Sadegh Ghasemi Feb 1 '18 at 12:15

Alt+Space by default is used to Activate the window menu

Alt+F10 by default is used for Toggle maximization state

You can change or disable these shortcuts in System Settings.

In Ubuntu 17.10 Desktop:

settings dialog

To disable these shortcuts, just click on one of them and press the backspace key.

For Ubuntu 16.04 the solution is same, but there is no defined default shortcut for Alt+F10

settings on unity

  • It's not available in my ubuntu VM 16.04. Let me know any other alternative solution for it. – Dinesh Feb 2 '18 at 5:08
  • Activate the window menu was disabled but toggle maxmization state still working for me . I have disabled in System Settings – Dinesh Feb 5 '18 at 5:31
  • Reset one shortcut doesn't disable another shortcut. For disable "toggle maximization state" shortcut, reset it's value. – Dexter Morganov Feb 5 '18 at 7:42
