MS-Outlook – disable Ctrl-Enter sending emails 2006-03-21 08:54

I hate sending unfinished emails


A few times, I have accidentally sent an email before I was finished with it by pressing Ctrl-Enter. While I see the practicality of this shortcut, I decided to disable it. To do this, you have make the following registry change, just remember, you’re doing this at your own risk :-)

Create the following entry:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\
Office\11.0\Outlook\DisabledShortcutKeysCheckBoxes]
"CtrlEnter"="13,8"

And if you’re using MS Word as your default email editor, create this one too:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\
Office\11.0\Word\DisabledShortcutKeysCheckBoxes]
"CtrlEnter"="13,8"
