Ctrl-S saves the work item edited in TFS Web Access - that's OK. The problem is that right Alt in some keyboard layouts is actually AltGr - Alt+Ctrl. Some layouts may use this key in combination with S to input some national character - e.g. in Polish AltGr-S is used to type "ś". It doesn't cause any problems with most applications but it is a problem for TFS which saves the work item and prevents "ś" from being typed.

It shouldn't be difficult to fix. In fact, we've come up with a fix ourselves: in TFS.WorkItemtracking.Controls.min.js we changed the line 

if (b.ctrlKey && String.fromCharCode(b.keyCode).toLowerCase() === "s") {


if (b.ctrlKey && !b.altKey && String.fromCharCode(b.keyCode).toLowerCase() === "s") {
