I am using IntelliJ IDEA and FreeCommander at the same time. In IDEA the keyboard shortcut ctrl-shift-F10 is standard for running unit tests. This works fine, except if I have FreeCommander running at the same time.

If FreeCommander is running and I press ctr-shift-F10, the mouse pointer turns into crosshairs, and nothing happens until I click something. When I do the FreeCommander is sent to the front.

I have tried to look for keyboard shortcuts, and configure them in FreeCommander but I haven't found anything, and I can't figure out what operation FreeCommander tries to do when the mouse pointer is crosshairs.

I would appreciate any help.

PS: I do not want to change the keyboard shortcut for running unit tests in IntelliJ IDEA, as ctrl-shift-F10 is a company standard.


In FreeCommander, go to Extras -> Desktop Snapshot. Then remove the hotkey.
