How is it possible to disable or change the shortcut 'Alt + S' (HP Support information)?


Model #: SR5249uk
PCBRAND: Presario

Yes, it is possible to do both.

The answer to this question lies here in this HP web document. You can reassign the key combination to another combination and it free for use in a program who need.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that you meant CTRL + ALT + S and not ALT + S

  • Is it possible to use shortcut "Alt +" in full screen?

    Is it possible to use shortcut "Alt +" in full screen?

    For example: if I am not in full screen and you want to open "Curved" I can hit 'Ctrl + M' but if I want to open the parameters "Curves" with the last used I can hit "Alt + I + A + U".

    Now, this last shortcut is not usable in full screen.

    This can be corrected?

    It has been possible in some older versions of PS...

    Yes and no.

    You need the Menu Bar Visible.

    ALT is a toggle. It switches on and off on the screen letter shortcuts. You can see who they letter because they will be highlighted on the screen. In the menu bar. You can see the picture in the menu bar I Gets a pointed out. I will be a shortcut for the Image menu. When they are underlined letters are shortcuts when they don't are not stressed that they are not shortcuts.

    When you press on I the menu Image opens and in the Image menu, you will see the A in adjustments is stressed and will be a shortcut for setting menu. However, if you open the image by another menu means that underscore I shortened the A in the adjustment item wouldn't be stressed and A would not be a shortcut for setting menu. If you use the shortcut to underscore A to open the settings menu, you will see the the u curve is highlighted and is a shortcut for curves adjustment.

    Its a catch 22 cases when your in fullscreen with the bar menu "Alt + I + A + U". will work because there is an Image I switch on. When your fullscreem in without "Alt + I + A + U" menu bar will not work because there is no I switched in am to the shortcut from the screen.

    Even when you do not full screen you press Alt and toggle for the I underline the shortcut in the menu Image on if your mouse click on the Image to open menu adjustments won't be stressed and will not be a setting menu shortcut it how to turn reduce tasks.

  • How the shortcut Alt + Backspace works? (dumb question)


    Sometimes I read a tutorial and they say I should use the shortcut Alt + Backspace to fill the selection with the foreground color.

    But every time I try on a selection, a drop down menu appears floating (options: restore, move, size, minimize...)

    It's silly, but I would like to know how to use it properly.

    Thank you

    BACKSPACE and space bar are not the same thing.

    BACKSPACE is your key to delete allows you to delete the characters that you have typed.

  • Where's the shortcut Alt + F4


    I just started my new HP dv7 and was quite sad to see that I can no longer close windows using the combo "ALT + F4".

    Is there anyway that I can integrate it maybe once more, or is it gone for good, or is it replaced by another combination?

    * Sorry if this has already been answered, I tried to find it but couldn't.


    I just thought of it myself. I'm guessing it's the f4 function exactly it then the fn key is to press F4 work. Add to the mix and you get, as said Vanshaj Daga;

    ALT + fn + f4

    and it should work.

  • Keyboard shortcut ALT + F has stopped working

    For as long as I can remember, in Notepad of Windows (many other programs), you can hold down the ALT key and press "F" key, then the "S" key (now the ALT key pressed) to save a file.
    Also, just the combination ALT + F opens the drop-down file menu.

    It always works on my XP computers, but on my computer Windows 7 Pro x 64 it recently stopped working.

    Opens the Edit drop-down list in Notepad the ALT + E combination, ALT + O opens the drop-down list Format, ALT + V will open the view drop-down list, etc.
    but ALT + F does not work (the underscores appear in all the selections menu when you press ALT).

    If you press and release the ALT key, features of underlining of menu items appear, and then you can press 'F' to get the drop down file menu.

    I'm sure that it is a recent issue since I use Notepad frequently and the ALT + F, by keystroke.

    I searched the web, but the only article I found was here: is more ALT + F opens the file menu
    and it says that "last system update (about April 1, 2013) seems to have solved the problem" but I don't have WIN7 until the
    This year and all of the updates are applied.

    PS - I know also, CTRL-S saves a file in Notepad, but old habits are hard to break.

    I tracked down the source of this problem.

    I had installed a terminal series called TeraTerm program to configure some WiFly RovingNetworks (now owned by MicroChip) microcontroller modules.

    Apparently, this program hanging in the keyboard messages and prevented the ALT - F key combination to other programs.

    Uninstallation of TeraTerm solved the problem.

  • How can I disable shortcut indicators alt popup on the screen?

    I am using Windows 7 64 bit

    In the programs in windows, when I type or maintain too long alt, a bunch of letters in boxes pop up onscreen.

    Letters that are aligned with menu/toolbar items you can push this letter and exploit the issue as if you were clicking on it with your mouse.

    Problem is I type alt, then change my mind. When I press another button after, something unexpected usually is if I don't remember to alt out back.

    Is there a way to disable this feature. So that every time I have let go made, tap or it is as if I had never pushed in the first place?

    It may be convenient if these letters only jumped up everything now for so long, but still have disappeared if I let go, and all the buttons to return to a non - shortcut alt mode.

    If this isn't the case, I would like to get rid of them all together and just use shortcuts alt without assistance.

    No, sorry.  It cannot be disabled.  Although the indicators if more perceptible displays now, they always have part of Windows dating back to 1987 (they just used only be slightly noticeable highlights on the menu text, instead of perceptible popups).

    Tip: If you hold down the alt key and they appear, you can press Alt to disable them.

  • Go to the first tab Alt - 1 does not

    For Firefox in Kubuntu 15.04 40. (installed costs) to go to the first tab with Alt-1 behavior no longer works.
    He has worked in previous versions of Firefox.

    This problem only happens "Alt - 1', Alt-2 and thus now work as expected."

    I guess the Linux operating system has supported the shortcut Alt + 1, and it is not Firefox.

  • Firefox (15) inserts a "Firefox HTML document" in the Windows Explorer file > new menu. It breaks my work bosses (Alt-FWF stops working). You will need to disable.

    I often use the shortcut Alt-FWF to create new directories under Windows.

    When 15 FF is set as default it modifies the file menu from Windows Explorer.

    She inserts an element "Firefox HTML document".

    This point seems to sabotage the above key combination. He intercepted the last f.

    In addition, I object to the name that is simply not true, for me.

    I deleted the registry key that inserts this thing. Unfortunately it appears again.

    I want to stop this behavior.

    How to kill it. (Other than by a different default browser.)

    I see, you have created an order C:\windows\shellnew for .htm files.

    Poking around for where the description could come... Have you tried to rename (by default) or FriendlyTypeName under:


    to see if it works? And if so, how long it sticks?

  • Shortcut keys toggle the State of the toggle switch

    How can I prevent a switch to update it's GUI State when it is accessible via the shortcut (Alt + letter)?

    I want to be able to do this without disabling the control and adjustment of the mode indicator.  I have created a reminder to swallow the event_commit.  The control still toggles when you use shortcut keys, but not when you click the control.

    Thinking about your problem occurred for me to experiment with a few SDK function to check whether the key of the accelerator feature can be disabled. While I failed at it, I noticed that if you install a quick access key system via the function RegisterHotKey SDK is a priority on the accelerator THAT CVI installs everything by adding double underscore somewhere in the control label. In other words, even if the sign of the accelerator is present, a quick access key system comes before and prevents the recall affects to be fired. This could be a realistic solution for your real problem.

    I did a quick example that shows all this matter: you can test all the combinations of keys installed on the control and see what happens.

  • Pavilion 15 ab062nl: HP Pavilion ab062nl 15, SHIFT, CTRL, ALT keys on linux problems

    I have a problem with the keyboard of the laptop HP Pavilion 15 ab062nl.
    the problem is with the keys ALT SHIFT and CTRL on the keyboard.

    for example when I use the shortcut ALT - TAB, after a few seconds, the ALT - TAB menu disappear as if I release the ALT key, but is not so.
    Another example is when I surf the web, when I scroll with the mouse wheel, sometimes the beginning of the page to resize, as if I am pressing CTRL command while marching, or if I write a text, sometimes the borwser launch shortcut, as if I am pressing CTRL while I type text , for exaple so I type letter 'b', open bookmarks...

    Another example is while I'm typing the text, if I press the SHIFT key and that you start to type, started writing letters and after awhile, written in lowercase as I released shift, but I'm always pressing shift.

    for example, if I press SHIFT + s, the result is this:
    some letters are capitalized, but others are tiny.

    I have not found a solution.
    the only way to fix it temporarily, makes pressure for a few seconds the shift only, after that, the problem goes away indefinitely, or until the next reboot.

    This problem occurs with all versions of ubuntu (x 86 and x86_64), now I use Ubuntu 15.10, but I also tried 15.04, ubuntu 10.04 ubuntu ubuntu ubuntu 12.04, 14.04.

    In addition, I have this problem too with the other Distributions of GNU/Linux (I tried Fedora, OpenSuse, ArchLinux, Antergos, Debian, SteamOS).
    but is not and the hardware problem, because on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 I don't have these problems.

    I also tried to connect an externa USB keyboard, and if I use external USB keyboard I have no problems.

    In my view, is a compatibility issue with this laptop's built-in keyboard.

  • ALT + 2 or shift + 2 is not functional in Android EditField

    How do Alt + 2 OR shift + 2 functional in Android EditField component which Alt + 0-9 & SHIFT + 0 to 9 are respectively seized from 0 to 9. Only Alt + 2 & shift + 2 aren't seizes 2 in the EditField on all physical BlackBerry QWERTY devices such as the Q5, Q10, passport, P 9983 & classic.

    Is this a known issue? This hotfix is scheduled to be delivered in the future BlackBerry Runtime for Android update applications?

    This problem seems to occur when the inputType is set to 'numberPassword '. A bug report has been noted so I hope that the issue will be resolved in the future.

    Remove inputType = "numberPassword" will allow you to use the shortcut Alt + e to enter '2', but I guess you want to restrict the EditText to accept only numeric characters.

    At the same time (if you still want to accept numeric characters), do not hold down the shift or Alt to enter '2' with inputType = "numberPassword." You can simply press the 'e' '2 '.

  • Easy Display Manager - Dell reference organize keyboard shortcuts


    Is it possible to assign access keys to the different easy organize layouts to quickly switch between layouts?

    If you are comfortable editing the registry, try to add the "Keyboard shortcuts" value to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\EnTech\DDM and setting the value to 2 (dword). After Dell Display Manager restarts, you should be able to cycle through layouts EA using the shortcut Alt + Ctl + shift + E. If you have multiple monitors, note that the shortcut key applies to monitor the mouse cursor is on.

    You will need to have the latest version of DDM (b.1498): hold down the SHIFT key while right-clicking on the DDM notification icon and select "Check for new version" in the context menu.
