How to disable swipe commands on MacOS

I'm used to using a 4-finger swipe on my trackpad to switch between full screen apps on MacOS. However IntelliJ seems to intercept these as well and uses it to navigate back and forward between open tabs (among other things). Is there a way to disable this?

The Apple JDK doesn't let us distinguish the number of fingers used in a swipe, so the only possibility is to disable the processsing of gestures entirely. In order to do so:
- press Ctrl-Alt-Shift-slash
- select "Registry"
- set the value of actionSystem.mouseGesturesEnabled to false
- restart

- press Ctrl-Alt-Shift-slash


Just curious, what shortcut I need to press on a German keyboard where no
non-shift slash key exists? Thanks in advance.

That is a nice little trick you've got there... :) Must checkout all those settings...

I'm sure this keycombo (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+/) is available on a German keyboard?!?

If not, are there no Linux systems to manage in Germany? ;)

Ctrl+Shift+A, enable "Include non-menu actions", then type "Registry"
