Disable Alt+tab in Slackware 13 installation?


Hello

Is there any way to disable the effect of Alt+tab during Slackware 13 installation?

I'm installing in a virtual machine so the Slackware console is in a Desktop window. The habit of using Alt+tab is just too ingrained and I keep messing up the installation when switching to "pre-installation notes" and "installation log" windows. I'm installing from a .iso on the host.

I guess it has been suggested before and rejected but it sure would be nice to have a "Back" button on the installation screens!

EDIT: SOLVED by opening up the keyboaord and pushing a folded piece of paper under the Alt key KISS!

Best

Charles
