Is there a way i can unbind the CTRL-ALT-S shortcut from Windows 11? Registry hack?
The shortcut launches Snipping Tool, but the app offern no option to change the shortcut.
When i un-install, it doesn't release the shortcut, meaning I cannot map CTRL-ALT-S in Steinberg Cubase like i have done for well over a decade.
It's almost like Windows has hijacked this command (much like how windows locks out the F1 key from many apps, including Cubase)

I solved this 6 years ago in Windows 10, i think back then the option to change the shortcut was there, but that is no longer the case.
There are similar forum posts about WIN-SHIFT-S with relation to Snipping Tool, but this is specifically for CTRL-ALT-S.

Thanks in advance!

Ahh.. Evernote.. the culprit
By default it uses CTRL-ALT-S for screen capture, and in turn it launches the snipping tool.
SOLVED.
