#3712 closed Bug (No Bug)

HotKeySet not sets Alt+F4 in Windows 10

Reported by: NSUSpray Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: 3.3.14.5 Severity: None
Keywords: Cc: nsu.spray@…

Description

When I run this script and press Alt+F4, the current active window closes, as if the script was not running at all.

func foo ()
	MsgBox (4096, "", "Alt+F4 is pressed")
endfunc

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

while True
	Sleep (1000)
wend

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

It appears that that key combination is reserved in Windows 10, you can use it with another modifier key such as control or shift, but not by itself.
Use something else.

By no means! In the topic to which I gave the link, noticed:

AutoHotKey work without any problem under Windows 10

I also checked with AutoHotkey and I have the same positive result.

The fact that AHK honours the combination means nothing - if they wish to mess with Windows reserved keys than that is their problem, not ours.
