How to disable ALT to activate the menu bar ?
I'm always using shortcuts in photoshop, constantly using E, B and ALT
ALT is the eyedropper as everyone knows but also it activates the menu bar File, Edit, Image, Layer etc. (keyboard navigation)
When i'm painting and i use ALT to pick a color and if i do it at my normal speed, many times the menu bar remains active, if i press E the Edit menu open and does not change the tool to erase and i paint instead of erase, this is very annoying.
I can not do things at the same speed because i have to always be aware of the menu bar
I tried the shortcut settings and have not found a way to disable the ALT to activate the menu bar or remove the E from Edit
ALT active the menu bar in all windows programs, i do not know if this can be changed in the system
i'm using Photoshop CS5
Windows 7 64bits
if you know a way to fix this problem, please let me know

I have the same problem -bookmarks thread- The alt- thing is for all of windows and not just PS so you would have to change that first, but I have no idea how.

This application will save your sanity. I made a thread once, but not many people noticed it. I had the same ALT problem:

This little program works very well, does what it promises!
Now the eyedropper is faster than before because it has no more menu bar activity
It has more options there, but for me only this "Disable ALT Menu" is enough
- Custom shortcut for Photoshop CS5 HUD Color picker
- HUD Color picker shortcut sticky
- Custom shortcut for Foreground Color picker (Any version)
- Foreground Color picker shortcut map Alt
- Quick to Creat a new layer
- Change Step Forward / Backward shortcut
- Double-click to quick launch Photoshop (CS5 Only)
- Lock input method to English
- Disable Alt menu

How to use
Just unzip and place the folder where you want. Run APssistant.exe (it can be configured to launch the Photoshop)

the one that REALLY fucks me off is when you push [ or ] to change the size of you B Brush and it changes the tool to what you were using before, ie E Eraser. Makes me fucking furious.
