I use Inspiron 1460 which need to press Fn key to enter F4. This thus make my Alt+F4 more difficult because I need to press 3 keys instead two shorter key combination. I want to change the key binding to Alt+Esc if possible. Can this be achieved? I use CompizSetting to change it before this but no luck.

Go to System Settings, and under the Hardware section click on Keyboard. You'll see Shortcut settings there, and Alt+F4 should be under "Windows."

  • Yeah! Thanks for that man. But I want to add here, somehow Alt+Esc won't work as a key binder. I choose Alt+RCtrl as a new key and Wallahhhh!!! It's great. Solve my key binding problem. Nov 6, 2012 at 15:58
