the variable @code{w32-alt-is-meta} to a @code{nil} value.
@findex w32-register-hot-key
@findex w32-unregister-hot-key
Although the @key{ALT} key is mapped by default to the Emacs
@key{META} key, MS Windows preempts its use by Emacs for certain key
combinations, such as @kbd{Alt-@key{TAB}}. You can use function
@code{w32-register-hot-key} to allow a key sequence to be seen by Emacs
instead of being grabbed by Windows. This registers the key sequence as
a Windows hot key.
The argument to @code{w32-register-hot-key} must be a one element key
definition in vector form that would be acceptable to `define-key'. The
@code{meta} modifier is interpreted as @key{ALT} if `w32-alt-is-meta' is
@code{t}, and @code{hyper} is always interpreted as the Windows modifier
keys. The return value is the hotkey-id if registered, otherwise
@code{nil}.

@cindex @kbd{M-@key{TAB}} vs @kbd{Alt-@key{TAB}} (MS-Windows)
@cindex @kbd{Alt-@key{TAB}} vs @kbd{M-@key{TAB}} (MS-Windows)
For example, @code{(w32-register-hot-key [M-tab])} lets you use
@kbd{M-TAB} normally in Emacs. This is effective at all levels, so, for
instance, you can use @kbd{M-TAB} at top level to complete the word or
symbol at point, and you can use it during incremental search to
complete the current search string against previously sought strings.
The function @code{w32-unregister-hot-key} reverses the effect of
@code{w32-register-hot-key}.
@vindex w32-capslock-is-shiftlock
By default, the @key{CapsLock} key only affects normal character
keys (it converts lower-case characters to their upper-case
