    I've created some macros in LibreOffice Writer 4.0. A hot key for one of them (Ctrl+Shift+2) executes the macro under Windows 7 Ultimate on my desktop PC, but not on my Windows 7 Home laptop. Home must for some reason be blocking the use of that key. It's annoying. I'm trying to keep my macro keys logical and easy to remember. Ctrl+1-9 do the same French language characters as Ctrl+Shift+1-9 do in uppercase. It's only on the laptop that one key doesn't work.

    I've tried to figure out which supposed feature Win 7 Home is using that Ctrl+Shift+2 for, but I'm not having any luck. I tried closing all apps and hitting that key from 7's desktop, but it didn't do anything. If anyone has any idea how I can solves this, I'd really appreciate it. Btw, I know for certain that macro is good on the laptop because it runs when assigned to another key (F3).
