Do you ever accidentally hit the Windows key while you're playing a game? Would you rather not go through the hassle of applying a registry edit and rebooting each time you want to enable or disable the Windows key? Windows Key Disabler is the solution. Windows Key Disabler is a small application that sits in your system tray allowing you to simply double-click the tray icon to toggle between the Windows keys being enabled or disabled without using up precious system resources.
So i am playing a certain game and i accidentally pressed the windows key causing the game to be minimized and the start bar to be displayed, that sucks, a lot. Thankfully today i found a little program that finally lets me disable the windows key without hacking into the registry like Windows support page says (seriously they couldn't bother to write a little application for this?), this program is called Windows Key Disabler. it comes in a small executable that when launched will show a small windows icon in the system tray, just double click the icon to disable the windows key and again to enable it, its very easy. you can tell when the key is disabled because the icon will be in B&W. This is a small program that doesn't require installation and it is very lightweight, a must if you hate the windows key as much as me. Available for Windows XP only.
