Unusable Keybindings (on Windows) Edit

There are a few key combos that cannot or should not be changed or used in-game.

[Print Screen] 1
Hitting this key will take a screenshot regardless of what you are doing.
[Alt]+[F4] 1, 2
Hitting this combo will close the game client regardless of what you are doing.
[Ctrl]+[Esc] 1, 2
Hitting this combo will open the start menu regardless of what you are doing.
[Alt]+[Tab] 1, 2
Hitting this combo will switch windows regardless of what you are doing.
[Alt]+[Esc] 1, 2
Similar to [Alt]+[Tab] except it just switches rather than letting you choose what to switch to.
[Esc] 1
Hitting this while trying to bind it to something else will cancel the change.
[Ctrl]+[C], [Ctrl]+[V], [Ctrl]+[X], [Ctrl]+[A], [Shift]+[Insert], [Ctrl]+[Delete]
If a text input frame has focus (the blinking vertical cursor is in it), the Windows' binding will take precedence.

1: This could possibly be changed via Lua scripting.
2: Even if changed via Lua scripting, the Windows' binding will take precedence.
