Windows 10 intercept alt+f4

Recommended Posts


Can you help me to intercept ALT+F4 key under Windows 10 ?
Work fine on Windows 7 but not on Windows 10.

I take the example code from autoit :


HotKeySet("!{F4}", "HotKeyPressed")

While 1

Func HotKeyPressed()
EndFunc   ;==>HotKeyPressed


Try with "#RequireAdmin" and try to modify sleep timer but same result.
Someone has an idea for intercept ALT+F4 keys and not let Windows 10 close the window ?
(AutoHotKey work without any problem under Windows 10)

Thank you for your help

On bug tracker say it's not a bug: https://www.autoitscript.com/trac/autoit/ticket/3712

I use _HotKey_Assign from HotKey UDF to work around this problem. It works.

#include <HotKey.au3>
func foo()_HotKey_Assign(BitOR ($CK_ALT, $VK_F4), "foo", $HK_FLAG_EXTENDEDCALL)
