-A number of Xfce applications (Xfce Terminal and Thunar for example) support the standard GTK+ way of changing shortcuts: simply hover over the menu option with the mouse pointer and press the keyboard shortcut you want to rebind it to. 
- 
-To delete a keyboard assignment, press the {key>​Backspace} key while you are on the menu entry. 
- 
-If the shortcut doesn'​t change, then you need to enable the feature in GTK+. This can be achieved in 3 ways: 
- 
-  * You can enable {gui>​Editable menu accelerators} in the **[[:​xfce:​xfce4-settings:​appearance#​menu_and_buttons|User Interface Preferences]]** dialog. 
-  * If you are running GNOME then you can enable {gui>​Editable menu accelerators} in the {gui>​Menu and Toolbars} control center dialog. 
-  * Otherwise put the following in your ~/​.gtkrc-2.0 file (create the file if it doesn'​t exist):\\ ''​gtk-can-change-accels=1''​ 
- 
-<note tip>In the case of Xfce4-terminal,​ you have to open 9 tabs to edit all the Alt+N entries.</​note>​
