Windows 10: Disable Win+Ctrl+D or Task View?

    Disable Win+Ctrl+D or Task View?


    Hi, I would like to disable this shortcut if possible, windows+ctrl+D. It opens a new desktop sometimes when I'm playing games and is really annoying.

    I have already disabled all Win+ shortcuts through regedit but this is still happening, if I can't disable that shortcut, is there any way to completely remove Task view? I never use it anyway.

    To re-enable and show or unhide the Task View button, just reselect the same “Show Task View button” option.

    Go to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

    Find a DWORD value named ShowTaskViewButton. By default, the value data is “1” for showing the Task View button on the Taskbar. Change it to 0 to hide it from Taskbar.

    Hi Daikin990, unfortunately that just disables the task view button, the key combo and task view still work after doing this, thanks though.

    Don't wanna sound like a disappointment, but I've been told that all the built-in Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts are nonadjustable. Neither can they be disabled.

    I've spent hours looking online to disable a Windows 10 keyboard shortcut (because I wanted to use that shortcut for a different program). I was unable to find any effective method, so I gave up. Instead I thought up of a different keyboard shortcut for my program (that wasn't being used by Windows 10) and stuck with that instead.

    If its interfering with a specific game keybinding, why not consider changing the key combination.

    The same thing is happening to me too! It literally only happens to me in Overwatch, and it only happens every few days, maybe once a week.

    I finally was able to capture it happening to me tonight, here's the video: Overwatch Screen Swap Glitch on Windows 10, Please Help! - YouTube

    If I figure out how to disable this key combo, I'll make sure to come back here and tell you.

    Edit: Apparently the only thing you can do is disable the Windows Key all together, which I don't like. When a game won't let me Alt+Tab, the Windows Key usually works for me, but now that i have to disable it, I can't use it. Here's how to disable it: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...rd-windows-key

    Another option, is to check if your keyboard will let the Windows key be locked by pressing Fn+F12.
