Google Docs keyboard shortcuts and the AdBlock menu

If typing in Google Docs and you press Ctrl+B to make something boldface, or you press Ctrl+F to open Chrome's text search box, but instead the AdBlock menu opens, it means a shortcut has been reassigned. We're not sure how this happens, but it's easy to fix.

3. Select Keyboard shortcuts

4. To remove the shortcut, click the "x" at the edge of the box
