Windows Alt-menu jump eating Alt based shortcuts

I’d like to use Alt-P to set the playhead, however Windows has that hooked into accessing the WinForms menu bar, so Alt-P activates the Script menu. Apparently this is not easy to turn off, however I found this video which links an AutoHotKey script purporting to fix this, but it’s not working for me.

Anybody get a workaround?

I’m afraid not: any shortcut that collides with one of the mnemonics for the menu bar won’t work. You’ll need to use a different shortcut. This is something we’d like to try to find a solution for at some point, but it’s not currently a high priority.

Yeah its a Windows built in system forced feature, not sure there’s anything you can do other than move from Win Forms possibly. I’m not sure WPF has it, or a Ribbon interface.
