Hi everybody

One of the very useful shortcuts of Wordfast has recently, after an automatic update of XP, changed into something new and, to be honest, quite useless to me.

Normally I use Ctrl+Alt+Insert to copy the source segment format.

What I get now is a blue screen with : shut down the machine - change password - task manager - block the machine - close session - cancel

I'd rather have my Wordfast shortcut back, but I don't know where this can be done.

If someone could tell me where to enter into XP's shortcuts to desactivate this one, I'd be very grateful

Tks in advance
Elisabeth

Are you sure that you didn't press CTRL+ALT+DEL? Jul 25, 2007

From what you describe it seems that you pressed CTRL+ALT+DEL, which opens the Windows Security dialog box.
Maybe your INS and DEL keys got stuck together.

They can't get stuck together, my keyboard is only 4 weeks old. Also, the DEL key is beside ENTER and the INS key beside F12, so quite far away from each other. However, Ctrl+Alt+Del also opens the same window...

What I would like to know is if they can be changed, and where.

Tks Olaf
