I would like to disable specifically the ctrl+arrow hotkeys. Can this be done? I'm using Office 365 Excel version 2102
Which version of Microsoft 365 Apps do you have?
If you have Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise, please try to set Group Policy.
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Excel 2016 > Disable Items in User Interface > Custom, enable "Disable shotcut keys".
Then enter following "[key],[modifier]" values:
"40,8" for Ctrl + Down arrow key
"38,8" for Ctrl + Up arrow key
"39,8" for Ctrl + Right arrow key
"37,8" for Ctrl + Left arrow key
For more, please refer to "Disabling shortcut keys by using virtual key codes" and "Virtual-Key Codes" (You need to convert the hexadecimal value to decimal).
If you have other versions for Microsoft 365 Apps, I suggest you try VBA code to disable these shortcut keys via "Application.OnKey" method.
But as the VBA code is out of our support scope, I would suggest you post a new thread with tag "office-vba-dev". Thanks for your understanding.
