# Ubuntu – How to disable “Lock screen” keyboard shortcut under Unity

lock-screenshortcut-keyssystem-settings

I don't want Super + L (that is the windows key pressed with the L key) to lock my screen. I have disabled this in settings, but it still happens. How do I make this not happen?

You should be able to see what is the current setting by the command:

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.lockdown disable-lock-screen


The output should be:

true


If it isn't, you can set it by the command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.lockdown disable-lock-screen true


A cosmetic downside on my system is however that the screen doesn't lock any more, but still turns black for a second or so. You'll have to see if it works well on your system.
