CAn I disable or change the "close browser" keyboard shortcut cmd-q (MacOS)


Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Pressing cmd-q closes the browser. I use cmd-w to close tabs and frequently wind up closing the whole browser down due to fat fingers
  2. Is there a way to change the shortcut to shift-cmd-q to protect my work?
  3. I can do that in Safari

Expected result: cmd-q no longer closes the browser

Brave Version( check About Brave): 1.57.53

Additional Information: BRAVE does not show up as a selection in Settings> keyboard > keyboard shortcuts > app shortcuts. I tried adding it, then adding “quit Brave” and assiging it to cmd-shift-q. That didn’t disable cmd-q from closing the browser.

@snsok look inside Brave’s settings. SettingsSystemShortcuts

Thank you. See the option to add a command to Exit Browser. However, that does not replace cmd-q or disable it. I would just like to disable it.

@snsok that allows you to add, edit, or remove shortcuts. If you mouse over where it shows commands, you’ll see it generates a - you can click on. Just like below:

That Ctrl+Shift+W is the Windows equivalent of your Cmd+Q

If I clicked on the image it would remove that shortcut.
