Command names for shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+PAGEUP/PAGEDOWN

Diego Raguindin 21 Reputation points

I would like to disable keyboard shortcuts CTRL+SHIFT+PAGEUP and CTRL+SHIFT+PAGEDOWN because they frequently conflict with a web app I use. I understand I can disable some shortcuts as described in this article, but I don't see the action/command in the article on Configurable MS Edge Commands.

If there are defined commands for these actions I would hope that they're different from the commands triggered by CTRL+(SHIFT+)TAB as I those are the hotkeys I use to switch between tabs.

    These two actions are called select_next_tab and select_previous_tab in the list, but it looks as if the Shift variants of Ctrl-PgUp and Ctrl-PgDn aren't mentioned. If you disable the actions in GP, you won't be able to use Ctrl-[Shift-]Tab to move between tabs. If you use Yu's suggestion about an extension, telling Edge to Do nothing for these two shortcuts may affect your use of the web app, too.

    Please report back for the benefit of others in the same situation.

    Hi @Diego Raguindin

    CTRL+SHIFT+PAGEUP and CTRL+SHIFT+PAGEDOWN are not in the Configurable Microsoft Edge commands, so they can't be disabled by the policy ConfigureKeyboardShortcuts.

    As a workaround, you can use some extensions to disable keyboard shortcuts. For example, there's an extension called Disable keyboard shortcuts. You can find the extension in Chrome Web Store. Open the extension link in Edge and click 'Add to Chrome' to install the extension in Edge, then you can navigate to edge://extensions/shortcuts and define the CTRL+SHIFT+PAGEUP and CTRL+SHIFT+PAGEDOWN do nothing:

    @Noel Burgess -- Shoot. Seems as though you're right about the extension disabling the command altogether. Although the actions you mentioned are not the same as the ones that execute given the shortcuts I listed. The shortcuts I gave don't select an adjacent tab, but actually reorder the active tab up or down. As Yu noted, there is no such configurable Edge command, whether with the hotkeys I gave or an alternative.

    It isn't a huge deal. When the shortcuts are enabled I'm still able to use CTRL+SHIFT+PGUP/PGDN in the web app to cycle through tabs in the app, but once I reach the left-most tab in the app and use the PGDN command again, Edge moves the tab down in the list. The opposite does not happen with the PGUP command, i.e. when I'm on the right-most tab in the app and use PGUP again the Edge tab is not reorganized. Given that it seems like something the web app developer could address.

    Luckily, when the PGDN command reorganizes the Edge tab I can still use PGUP to move back up the tabs in the web app.

    Thanks for pointing this out, and to @Yu Zhou-MSFT for the original suggestion.
