Ubuntu: disable Alt to launch HUD

Problem
In Ubuntu (with Unity), Alt launches the HUD. Fine. However, if you have a Windows in VirtualBox and you want to switch windows in the guest VM with Alt+TAB, that damn HUD always appears in the host. How to disable it?

Solution
I found the solution here.

In short: top right corner, System settings… -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts tab -> Launchers. Assign a new key to “Key to show the HUD“, or disable it completely by pressing the Backspace.
