Default How do I disable CTRL+W in Internet Explorer?

Yours is even more pointless...look at the dates on the thread, DeadHead
from EggHead.

Pointless response.

I don't ever want to use it.

When I press it by mistake it sometimes results in loss of whatever I've

Naturally, I want to disable this annoying shortcut.

How can I do this?

I've searched and cannot find anything that tells me how to do this (it
even
took a while before I found a reference to the CTRL+W shortcut!).

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

It's not only not unlikely, it's actually quite a distinct
possibility, if
you're using the Dvorak keyboard layout: CTRL+W is right next to
CTRL+V.

Hence my desire to disable this potentially destructive shortcut.

QWERTY layout causes it to be less often an accidental press, as
CTRL+Q and
CTRL+E aren't really used all that much I would presume. ;-)

Thank you for indulging my curiosity and broadening my thought

Dear Pendan.



I have had exactly the same problem. This morning I
spent several hours updating a wiki page at work, and
went to paste in some text, but hit Ctrl+W instead of
Ctrl+V. IE closed without any confirmation dialogue.



How disheartening.



For those who don't know about this issue, the W and V
keys are neighbours on the Dvorak keyboard layout. And
that's just asking for trouble when programs don't
confirm the closure of a window.



So this happens to me every few months. I usually use
Firefox, which at will ask to confirm a window closing,
but my employer forces me to use Internet Explorer for
some tasks on our intranet.



Needless to say, I lost all of my work.



After some research, it seems that Windows XP does not
let you change or disable shortcut keys, unlike Mac OS
X, which does. I found the solution to be to download a
free open-source tool called HotKeyBind. I have set
Ctrl+W to toggle the Windows XP Mute feature. That's
nice and benign. As HotKeyBind will automatically start
when I log in, I should be protected from now on.



You can download HotKeyBind he



- http://sourceforge.net/projects/hotkeybind/



And as for those who suggest that we simply learn to
type more accurately, they are missing the point. I am
a very fast and accurate Dvorak typist, but if you take
your hand away from the keyboard, there will always be
a chance that you might not put it back in the correct
place, even with the alignment bumps on the U and H
keys (F and J for Dvorak). As I wrote, this problem
hits me every few months. This time it hurt so much
that I actively sought out a solution that works for
me.



Pendan, I hope this helps you. It's more of a
work-around, but it seems to be the best solution.
Microsoft usually bends over backwards to be all things
for all people, but in this case they appear to have
thought that no-one would ever want to change a
shortcut key.

I can tell you why I accidentally hit it all the
time and it is very inconvenient. My company just
switched from a CRT application in which ctrl-w was
used to save current notes, now we you a web based
application. My brain still tells me to use ctrl-w
to save my notes when really I just have to click on
save. So, whats the moral of the story ... I can
type a note for 30 minutes just to find out I hit
ctrl-w by accident, now I must type it all over
again. Yes, it is aggravating.
