Option to Disable Hotkeys (e.g. Hotkey Hijacking)

As a web-hosting provider, I would like the option to disable all hotkey shortcuts (maybe in tweak settings) so that I can maintain my daily workflow.

Folks that have been using WHM/cPanel for a while now have their hotkeys engraved in our memories. It's how we remain productive.

That said, keys such as tilda (to hide the side menu in WHM), CTRL + F in the text editor for file manager, and other various keyboard shortcuts are not working as expected and have been taken over by the embedded applications in our browsers.

Operating systems have a standard set of shortcuts such as CTRL+C, CTRL+V, CTRL+F, etc,. It goes downhill when browser pages hijack shortcuts and take control of its functionality.

I'm sorry if I've not addressed Mac users properly, I don't use a Mac. This feature request is however intended for all operating systems, and I'm sure some keyboard shortcuts have been taken over by cPanel software in some way or another, as in this example here.
