How can I change the shortcut key?

For Google Chrome, whenever I'm editing a document and I want to use the cut shortcut, CTRL + X, it always opens up the AdBlock dropdown list. And it bugs me because I use the key all the time on other programs and it works fine.
Is there any way to change the shortcut key to something else?

    Wow, I didn't even say that this discussion was fixed.
    I just wanted to continue reading on another topic that was suggested and it 'suggested' that it was fixed...

    It's still not, actually.

    Hi Preston,

    Sorry about that. Our current support platform is sometimes less than helpful. We're in the process of moving to a new, much friendlier, support site.

    To change the keyboard shortcut:

    1. Type chrome://extensions in the address bar to open Chrome's extensions page.
    2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Keyboard shortcuts.
    3. Click the x to delete the shortcut assigned to AdBlock, then click OK.

    Please let us know if you didn't see the Ctrl-D shortcut there!

    Hello Rhana,

    Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. I actually didn't notice that the extensions page had the keyboard shortcuts at the very bottom. I went in, and I removed the assigned shortcut for AdBlock.

    Also, I didn't see the CTRL + D shortcut in the list, if that's what you were asking.
    If it was something else instead, you can let me know.

    Hi Preston,

    I think I typed Ctrl+D but meant to type Ctrl+X! Did removing that shortcut fix the issue for you?
