Disable WIndows-Key

Post by Pe334 »

Hi,

after 200h of gameplay I wish you could make an Option in the settings to disable the windows-key :roll:

I pressed it hundrets of times because it lays directly left from the ALT-Key :lol: :lol:

It's not easy to disable the windows key from a single application due to how windows handles the windows key before it even gets passed to the application, but Microsoft does give some information on disabling it globally here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/216893

Sorry, all games I played have this Option :) :), I'm a programmer and it is not sooo difficult !!!!!
You must intercept the Event bevor it goes to the System.

Sorry if I am mistaken. I was not aware of any games that did, and my understanding of low level programming is rather limited as most of my experience is with Java and C#.

No problem, this Option would be nice but it is not a must have.

Added to viewtopic.php?f=80&t=307 Gamepad/controller support (also keybinding)

Of course this must keep as an option, cause me for example use the windows key to bring other processes to front. And I never hit accidentially that key - in my opinion it is also dependent on the keyboard-layout.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

All blizzard games have this option.

You could move the ALT binding to one of the F-Keys (F1 and F2 are unbound iirc). Would be a stop gap measure for now.
