this has happened to me only a very few times.

but i could be working on something (like in a painting program or whatever) and i may accidently close the program by mistake. for example: i may mean to hit the _ but press the X and then when it says do you want to save, i may click NO instead of CANCEL. and therefore, any work i did just went down the drain.

some programs let you press CTRL + S to save. what if you are just doodling with something just to see something but you dont want to save it bc you just messed everything up. you go to press CTRL + Z to undo, but the S is next to the Z and you end up saving over it and you messed it all up now.

anything that can be done about this? is it even possible to disable certian hot keys like CTRL + S. i think that is the stupidest thing ever and all you need to to is just go to the top to save anyway. who saves so often that they need a hot key to press. are people that lazy?

I fully understand and appreciate your dilemma. Download this:http://www.brianapps.net/hotkeyplus/. Then program it to do the opposite of what you want it to do.

wow. that think lookes cool. but i didnt download it...

i just found out something right now.

i was refering mostly to Paintshop pro when i said that i didnt want to accidently save something. and i just found out that the program lets you edit the hot keys. it also lets you create and edit toolbars !!!!

wow. god bless this program. it is REALLY customizable and it lets you change just about everything. good it is.
