Can I set up KiTTY to send F7 press instead of bringing up Print dialogue when I press F7?

I make intense use of Midnight Commander and its editor, which both rely on F7 (to create a directory and to search through text) and I never actually print from a terminal.

According to just change print={F7} in the [Shortcuts] section of your config file to something else, e.g. print={SHIFT}{F7}.

I used to have print={SHIFT}{F7} and printall={F7} there. I've just removed both (as I NEVER print), but it didn't help. Printing still pops up on F7 :-( – Ivan Apr 2 '11 at 7:15
I've replaced F7 with F12 then and this has solved the problem practically (so, I accept the answer as correct), but I'd prefer to remove this at all if possible. – Ivan Apr 2 '11 at 7:19
I gave a few things a shot, and found that creating kitty.ini, in the location of kitty.exe, with the text: [KiTTY] shortcuts=no ...will also disable F7's action of printing. – stylez Apr 2 '11 at 12:56
If you're looking for kitty.ini on Windows, I found mine in `C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\KiTTY`. – patrickvacek May 8 '14 at 17:10
