Well if you just want to disable the start button:

ControlDisable("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]","","[CLASSNN:Button1]")

Ask the teacher to respect your privacy and only access what you are willing to allow her/him to see.

You'd be amazed at an adult is willing to do opposed to your buddies.

But realistically speaking... This request is going in my duh bookmarks... (hiding from my teacher... whatever).


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

ControlDisable("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]","","[CLASSNN:Button1]")

WinSetState("classname=Shell_TrayWnd", "", @SW_HIDE)

Are ya'll going to remove the windows key from the keyboard as well?

You may feel your teacher is incompetent, but you'd be amazed.

So back to my suggestion, speak with them first, if they say they will respect your privacy and you believe them, allow them to use it... if you don't... don't.

If you're desperate:

While 1 
WinSetState("classname=Shell_TrayWnd", "", @SW_HIDE)
Sleep(10)
WEnd

I would follow SmoKe_N's advice though...

Disable windows key:

CODE

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]

"Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,00,00,5b,e0,00,00,5c,e0,\

Is everyone ignoring Smoke? I think he's right... Or just hide whatever you want to hide, should be easier.

You sound annoyed for some reason. I recommend you take a chill pill.

There is no way it is fair for you to assume that we just "know" what you have already done or tried.

So adding such words to your responses like "duh" and "already did that" serve no purpose but making you sound impatient. Tell us what you have already done if you don't want us to suggest it.
