Hotkeys using the Windows key in Windows 7

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I have a script which uses Windows key + the cursor keys. Since changing to Windows 7 the script no longer works. I think this is because Win7 uses these keys for its own shortcuts. Has any one else managed to get similar hotkeys to work? I've tried disabling the "snap to" feature, but that didn't make any difference.

I realise I could use other hotkeys, but I've been using this script for a couple of years and it's second nature now.

Any help gratefully appreciated.

Thanks very much for this, and sorry it's taken so long to reply.

I followed these instructions, and it has indeed disabled the rather annoying functions in Win7 that use the windows key, for which I shall be eternally grateful. :x The problem I now have is that I don't seem to be able to use hotkeys in autoit that use the windows key.

Have I missed something?

Regards,

Simbo
