Windows 7 Professional Edition 64-bit
Disabled Left but not Right....

Hello. Thank you Zidane for your useful .reg file. Unfortunately, it seems to only have disabled the left windows key for me, and not the right. Can you post can updated one which disables both keys? Thank you!

Hello Lain, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you already tried the one in the tutorial link posted earlier in this thread here?

Hope this helps,

I have not, but I seek to disable the Windows key entirely, rather than just disable the Windows key shortcuts, which the tutorial expressedly does not accomplish.
