I have a new Macbook Air with Lion and I'm using Excel in VMWare Fusion and it has a hotkey for Control + Shift + Down Arrow.

Every time I try and use this key combination instead of doing what it's supposed to do for Excel it's getting intercepted by Lion.

Is there a way to disable this hotkey globally or perhaps just when I'm using Fusion?

To reassign the key globally, go to System Preferences » Mission Control and under Application Windows, where it currently says ^↓, assign another key (I used F10, à la exposé).

Thanks! This horrible shortcut was conflicting with sublimetext. –  caarlos0 Jun 29 '13 at 18:55
