Hi guys. I am currently having an issue on Windows 10. When I am playing a game(GTA was first time I noticed), and I press CTRL + Q, the game suddenly tabs out. If anyone knows how to disable this, please let me know. I use CTRL and Q when flying about in helicopters and it gets annoying when the game keeps closing on me

I can't see a direct WIn 10 shortcut use for that. https://www.advance-africa.com/control-keys-in-computer-az-control-key-shortcuts.html

It could be one of your startup programs perhaps?

Try a clean boot and see if it changes anything - make sure to read instructions and make sure NOT to disable any microsoft services or windows won't load right - https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows

if clean boot fixes it, it shows its likely a startup program. You should, over a number of startups. restart the programs you stopped to isolate the one that is to blame.

Thanks for your reply. I'm so grateful for this. I have asked everywhere and no one seemed to know what's going on (and neither did I). When you told me to check individual applications that solved the problem. Everyone else just told me it's a basic windows function and can't be changed. Turns out it was a shortcut assigned to my emulator software for a "boss key". I exited the emulator and now it is not doing it anymore. I should've tried this process of elimination earlier tbh. I appreciate the help. Everything is now working correctly.
