    How to turn off windows hotkeys that use the RIGHT Win key


    https://www.nextofwindows.com/how-t...8b89d08b3106d9992818cda4eda901#comment-294596 claims that specific shortcuts can be disabled, but does not show how to distinguish between those using the left windows key and those using the right. I'd like to know how to turn off some using the right windows key.

    How can you disable hot keys?

    One way is with Autohotkey (very useful free scripting language)
    Example to disable right Win key:
    RWin::return

    Just that line in a script should do it.
    Or you can have a list of specific hotkeys or hotkey combo's...

    Autohotkey as suggested remedy.


    I already use AutoHotkey extensively, and in fact, the purpose of my question is to release some more keys for use by Autohotkey. Specifically, AutoHotkey has been unable to over-ride the following THAT USE THE RIGHT-WIN KEY : a, d, e, f, l, m, r, t, u, and ; I do not want to release them all, but only those that are related to functions that I would not use.
