Disable Ctrl+Alt+MouseWheel keybind

It changes Virtual Desktops by default. I can't seem to find an option to configure it in the Plasma menu

How curious. I also don't know where this comes from, but it's probably something in KWin. It also doesn't seem to work for me when triggered with a touchpad; it switches but then goes right back after the scroll gesture ends.
Comment 2 Angelo 2023-03-07 17:44:59 UTC
Can't find an option even in Kwin, I just want to disable it because it interferes with other applications like for example Reaper DAW

virtualdesktops: use Meta key for axis shortcuts

These shortcuts currently don't use the Meta key, which allows them to
block app shortcuts (for example, in the Reaper DAW app). In general
it's a good idea for global shortcuts to use the Meta key to avoid
these kinds of conflicts since apps typically don't use the Meta key
for their own shortcuts. Other axis shortcuts set by KWin components
already do this, so let's do the same thing here.
