    I was wondering how I can change keyboard shortcuts in lion.

    For example, alt + left/right arrow keys work as swiping full screen apps right now. I want to disable it. Can anyone show me how?

    1. Settings -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts.
    2. Uncheck Box
    3. ....
    4. Profit

    To clarify you want the ones under Mission Control -> Mission Control -> Move left a space and Move right a space.

    You're welcome.

    I was guessing you double booked (assigned) it or however you want to think of that.

    You can double click the action to change the default shortcut as well if you still want to use a shortcut for the OS level functionality. You have to click over where it shows you the glyph for Alt+arrow and not the name for some reason.
