Google-chrome – Disable Option-Click download in Chrome

google-chromekeyboard shortcuts

I frequently use Cmd+click in Chrome to open a link in a new window. But sometimes my finger slips and I accidentally press the Option key instead of Cmd, which is the shortcut for downloading the link target.

Is there a hidden setting to disable this, or a Chrome extension that does it?

There's an advanced setting to pop up a save dialog for any download, but I expect this will affect intentional downloads as well. I would like to disable only the keyboard shortcut if possible.

There is no way to do it with chrome settings, but you can use this extension to map option+click to nothing or to open a link in a new window. Tell us if it works.
