Disable the Windows Key in both the physical and virtual keyboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • The following reg code will disable the Windows Key on a Physical keyboard but not the Virtual keyboard (I am using Windows 7).

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
    "Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,00,00,5B,E0,00,00,5C,E0,00,00,00,00

    I can't find anything about disbaling the Windows Key on a virtual keyboard, does anyone know how to do this?

    Oh to re-enable the Windows Key on a phyiscal keyboard use the following:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
    "Scancode Map"=-  

    or just delete the Scancode Map value.
