How to turn off ALT as an immediate Short Cut key?

Starting with the May'23 release--to seemingly behave similarly to Excel--when I am writing a DAX formula and press ALT + ENTER to get to a new line, by having pressed ALT, I now am unable to continue typing my formula until I exit the short cut prompt.  This is maddening.  Does anyone know if there's a way to turn this off?

@Timbaktu , I am getting that only with Alt+ctrl and Alt + enter and Shift enter is working for me , even if they are visible


Thanks. So when I press ALT + Enter to get a new line, it brings up the short cut keys...does this not happen for you? Sorry I didn't completley understand.
