@koldb and anyone else finding this page: I posted a more specific solution for gamers at the end of a thread already referenced here. Here's the specific post: Disabling Alt-Tab - Solution for Gamers

Also, the following instructions are really easy to follow, but instead of using "!Tab::return" as the AutoHotKey code you can replace that with mine if you're having a similar problem to what I described: Easy to Follow Instructions for setting up AutoHotKey

Disable alt+F4
I would like to use alt together with the "F" keys as shortcuts in a game but alt+F4 just terminates the game. Is there a way to remove that function from the key combination? I know this must have been asked before but search rejects both terms and I get no results.
