Alt+F4 closes FarManager instead openning external editor

Post by pedja »

I installed FarManager on Windows 11 PC and I noticed that I cannot run external editor using Alt+F4. Instead of opening editor, FarManager closes. It seems like Windows 11 changed something so Alt+F4 does not reach FarManager any more.

Alt+F4 always closes current Windows in Windows except FarManager. Far used to intercept that key event and run external editor.

Is there something I can do to FarManager or Windows to make Alt+F4 work as expected?

pedja, configure Windows Terminal. Disable hotkey Alt+F4 (Close window)
