Default Disabling Windows Key

Does anyone know a sure fire way of disabling the Windows Key on your keyboard? I did a few years ago through Reg Edit; editing the keyboard layout option.

Just gets annoying when playing computer games and the finger hits that damn button.

Thanks guys.

don't know about diabling it, but you could just pull the button off till you find what you are looking for.

I seem to remeber that you can change the keyboard layout in the regional setting from a standard 102 to 100 or somthing like that....have look in there and the keborad ap under control panel.


Help us Help you:

I love the Windows key, difficult to work without it. I do so many thigns with it.

you should prolly remap your keys and stop using Ctrl as your fire key. Get used to WASD and the mouse, as those are the keys that most all first person shooters use now.

Other than that, I was going to recommend you pull the key off as well.
