how can i disable ctrl+alt+tab shortcut for windows 7

i need to do this so i can have my shortcut back in Excel, ctrl+alt+tab is the indent shortcut, but windows 7 shortcut trumps it so it does not work.

 

HI,

 

I would suggest you to turn off or uncheck sticky keys, toggle keys and filter keys. To do so follow below link this may help you to resolve your issue:

Bikesh,

 

But surely what Chris is reporting is just the correct behaviour and not the result of sticky keys etc.

Ctrl-Alt-Tab is still displayed in Excel as the shortcut for increase indent but Ctrl-Alt-Tab is also the Win7 shortcut for a persistent version of the well-established Alt-Tab window switching shortcut. 

What Chris is saying is that Win7 takes charge of this key combination [as you would expect - Win7 gets a higher priority than Excel] and he's asking if there is a way of disabling this behaviour.  I think the answer is no but you might know better.
