    Hi, I used to use Windows 8.1 and I have an application that I use which uses a Control + Windows Key + D (Ctrl+Win+D) keyboard shortcut. But now in Windows 10, that opens a new Desktop. I want to disable this shortcut, and activate my shortcut that I use for that application.

    Can somebody please tell me how to permanently disable certain Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts so I can use that shortcut for my application instead?

    Thanks!!
    I use autohotkey with this script

    #InstallKeybdHook

    ; Disable Win + Ctrl
    LWin & sc020::
    If GetKeyState("LControl")
    SendInput #{sc020}
    Else
    SendInput #{sc020}
    Return

    --------------------------
    I don't know another solution this problem. But this is really big problem when you try just press Win+D or something.

    Hmm that would work, yet I don't want to have a 3rd party program open dedicated just to disable that simple shortcut.

    As a matter of fact, over this period of time since when I first posted this post, I set my new shortcut to:
    Win + Alt + Keypad Plus Sign
    and I'm now familiar with that shortcut instead.

    Thanks for the reply though, appreciate the help.

    Of course the use of third-party software is not the best solution, but I have not found any other.
    On the Internet are usually advised to fully disable all Windows hot keys, but I use some of them.
    If you know any real way to solve this problem - please let me know in this thread .
    Here I posted this decision, because I think this method will be useful for many others who are looking for it.

    Yes I agree. Your post in general is intended to help others that may have similar problems.

    But yes, if I come across a solution, I'll remember to post back here. It might be very unlikely for me to look for a solution, since I found my workaround to the problem (by using an alternate key combination). But If I ever come across something that lets you disable individual Windows hot keys, I'll post back here =D
