Disabling an xfce4 keyboard shortcut

I am new to xfce (version 4.4.1).

How can I disable an xfce key shortcut assigned by default? I want to leave Alt-Space for a very frequently used work in emacs, but now when I press it, I get an xfce window menu. How can I "pass" the key-press to the application (emacs)?

Thanks in advance.

I got it.

There are two keyboard shortcut menus: 1 "Settings -> Keyboard Settings" and 2 "Settings -> Window Manager Settings". The "Alt-Space" is defined in 2.


keyboard, shortcuts, xfce, xfce4
