I'm using iTerm 2 on Mac, and whenever I press Command + Return the thing goes full screen. My big fat fingers can't help it, so I really need to turn it off. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

    Waiting a few seconds for the stupid animation just killed it for me. (the animation is cool when you actually want full-screen). – Tim Harper Sep 5 '15 at 7:02

    Slack broke my brain training me to use Command-Return. I set iterm to ignore and then went to Slack and set "Show send button" off so I can train my brain properly again. – flickerfly Feb 1 '19 at 17:30

    Simply try restarting your brain – Mark Stewart Feb 18 '19 at 10:43

Set Command + Return to Ignore in the iTerm 2 preferences.

    Note, you have to add this entry using the + at the bottom. It isn't there by default. – studgeek Jan 20 '17 at 20:21

You can also change shortcuts from System Preferences:

Or by editing property lists:

defaults write -g NSUserKeyEquivalents -dict-add 'Toggle Full Screen' '^@f'
defaults write -app iTerm NSUserKeyEquivalents '{"Toggle Full Screen"="\0";}'
