Many Thanks to all who replied, and especially to Daniel and Jon for the CTRL+Q suggestion.
I overlooked CTRL+* combinations because I had grown accustomed to Win+ combinations. But came to realize that CTRL+Q is indeed the same as my previous Win+W, just shifted to the left. And a quick look through the IDEs and other applications I use most often show that I don't rely on CTRL+Q for anything currently.
So, from now on, CTRL+Q it is.
Many thanks folks.
And Eric, once again, a shout out for this indispensable tool. Slick run is *the* first app I install on a fresh new PC, and I keep a copy of my INI file and the exported keywords on my dropbox. A new machine does not feel right unless I've installed SR on it :-)
