Disable/Toggle Hotkeys

    I totally agree!!!!

    THIS, especially now that the button I've been using to mute/unmute myself is the "previous" button on my mouse (which I've never used for this function ever in any app or program) and this damn button is now doing "previous DM/text channel" on discord, which is a PAIN, AN ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE THAT I CANT EVEN STOP EVEN BY USING A THIRD PARTY PROGRAM TO DISABLE THE "PREVIOUS" FUNCTION ON MY MOUSE THAT WORKS ON ANY OTHER PROGRAM. /rage

    I dont understand why this hasnt been implemented yet lol. Shouldve been right alongside it upon development.

    I agree. I want there to be a toggle button to turn off all hot key functions.

    There's a reason the CTRL+ALT+DELETE function use keys on opposite ends of the keyboard. So you don't Accidentally use the feature..

    Feel free to skip to the TL/DR at the bottom....

    I just accidentally started a Call in a private DM by pressing the hotkey combination, myself.

    It freaked me out because I manually disabled all the user-configured Keybinds in Discord in an attempt to avoid this very situation.

    Yes, I would like to never miss the keys I'm aiming for on the keyboard...… but since that is..... somewhat unlikely..... I would at least like to, as able, prevent the wrong combination of key presses causing an undesired result - even Microsoft lets you turn off those shortcuts for Sticky Keys and the like as per https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/115391-turn-off-sticky-keys-windows-10-a.html

    I did something similar once before in Discord and accidentally opened the Console with Ctrl+Shift+I which really worried me since I had no idea what I had done to open it and it looked like something one needed to be careful with - props on the provided warnings when opening the Console, but opening it by accident..... not knowing it existed.... was rather frightening.

    I had to google around and finally found https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001239472-Troubleshooting-Console-Log-Errors which alleviated my concerns..... but it was not a positive experience for someone who's somewhat of a worrier in regards to PC security!

    TL/DR: Please let us disable the built in "Keyboard Combos" aka hotkey functions!

    There's a hotkey for just about everything else.... https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/225977308--Windows-Discord-Hotkeys ... what's one more to toggle them all on and off? :)

    Count me in on wanting the ability to turn them off, too. Getting real tired of performing accidental calls when I fumble my keystrokes...
