As of recently something has changed the behavior of Alt on my system. I am running Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.2 LTS. When I press for example Alt + F4, the system opens the 4-th virtual terminal and only when I come back to GUI (with Alt + F7) the window actually closes. The same holds for pressing left and right arrows with Alt pressed. I would like to restore the default behavior so that I would need to press Ctrl + Alt + F* to get to virtual terminals.
