Lightroom: Sync settings keyboard shortcut (ctrl-shift-S) keeps changing to export images

For many versions of  Lightroom, the sync settings keyboard shortcut (ctrl-shift-S) will randomly change exporting images. This first started many versions ago and is still happening in Version 8.3. I'm running Windows 10 Pro.

Trashing preferences temporarily fixes the issue, but of course, I then have to spend hours/days rebuilding all of my preferences since Adobe still doesn't have a preferences backup. 

Adobe Support has tried to fix this on numerous occasions but has yet to solve it.

I turned off the pre-installed Publish Service for Flickr and now the short cut is working. Will monitor how long this lasts.

Brett,

To back up to a previous version of your preferences, you could use my free Snapshot Prefs plugin, which keeps 20 snapshots of your preferences, from the past few minutes all the way back to several months. Here are my snapshots:

John’s plug-in have saved me on several times already. Worth checking it whether Adobe fixes this issue or not.
