Please help if You know the solution.


I found the answer to my question on XFCE forums by vineel567:

Type xfce4-settings-manager in terminal and then click 'settings editor'. Then to the left click xfwm4 channel then in the right pane change the value of easy_click from <alt> to 'nothing'.

It of course works. Sorry for being stupid and not checking what DE I have before trying to change its settings.
