Windows 7: Start bar popping up

04 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7
Start bar popping up

When I press "w" I get tabbed into the start menu, even when I am running some program. I tried to disable windows hotkeys(Windows Key Shortcuts - Enable or Disable[2]=Shortcuts)and it didn't help. I am using Windows 7 home premium 64-bit version(6.1,build 7600)

Edit: Okey so I found out what the issue was, somehow w binded to left windows button and it didn't register anywhere. Fixed it with Map Any Key to Any Key on Windows 7 / XP / Vista - How-To Geek , in case anyone has the same problem I hope this will be helpful.
