    Windows key disabled by system cannot re-enable, help..


    Hello my windows key got disabled when I turned my pc on a message popped up saying: "system has disabled the windows key" I tried to do this method; [https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...d-windows-key], but the download doesn't work and there is no sancode map registry... If you could help me resolve this that'd be great.

    Thanks

    CYAN1DE,

    Welcome to TenForums!


    Some keyboards have a key that you press to toggle the Windows key on and off, particularly in a gaming PC.

    Is that the case?

    there is a toggle for the t-pad that uses the fn key, out of curiosity I used the fn key with windows key and while holding the fn key the windows button works! which is good enough! thanks for the input! I never would have figured that out otherwise. Still weird I can't get it back to stock I have no Idea what I did to make it this way.

    Have you tried using Fn + F6 to turn the Windows key on or off?
