Close the current tab: Ctrl + w or Ctrl + F4

Description of the issue:
Common shortcut/hotkey for closing a tab doesn’t work (Ctrl+w).

There’s a list of info here saying that there are 2 shortcuts for this action:

Close the current tab Ctrl + w or Ctrl + F4

But only Ctrl+F4 works, which is not so convenient for productive browsing.

Expected result:
I’d like to have Ctrl+w shortcut working in Brave on Windows.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
OS: Windows10Pro
Brave: v1.62.162 (Feb 7, 2024) Chromium 121.0.6167.164 - updated to currently latest version.

Additional Information:
Other commonly used shortcuts related to tabs, e.g. switching, closing, re-opening last closed work normally.
I use also Brave on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and don’t have this issue. Ctrl+w works there normally.

The shorcut Ctrl+w unexpectedly has just started working (Ctrl+F4 works as well). I didn’t do anything related to it. I was setting up a printer and opened a few tabs. I don’t think I clicked some unusual combination of keys that I haven’t used before. I would appreciate an explanation, so that in the future I can fix this purposefully.
