How can I make F3 does not bring up the search function

I don't want windows to bring up the search function whenever I hit F3. How can I change the windows keyboard shortcuts so I can get him to stop?

I; m do not know how in Vista, but the following program claims to be able to remap existing keyboard keys and can help you remove the F3 function or at least let you change to another function.

Here is another free software that claims to be able to do the same:

I'm not sure that these programs actually work with the F3 hotkey and since they are 3 third party programs, use you them at your own risk.  I suggest the creation of a restore systemm point and back up the registry before you try both methods to be on the safe side.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

  • How can I keep STROKE does not spread on the next page?

    My InDesign document has a few features that are on a 45 degree angle and I'm trying to keep them does not spread on the next page. I can't send them to the back which will not work in this case. Is it possible to prevent them from showing on pages all about? Thank you!

    Why not just remove the offending part of the path? Move the curvilinear straight ends or use the scissors tool to cut what you don't need.

  • How can I make and delete a snapshot of the command line in ESXi 4?

    How can I make and delete a snapshot of the command line in ESXi 4?  ghettoVCB4i does, but I need unusual behaviour for two virtual machines.  I need to be able to save only one of the two virtual drives, not both.  So I can't use this script here.  I need to write a script that will:

    1 copy off the .vmx

    2 make a snapshot of a virtual computer running

    3 use the vmkfstools command to clone the vmdk in the backup location

    4 remove the snapshot.

    The snapshot is the part that I do not know how.  I do not see a flash drive in vmkfstools and I do not understand the snapshot code in ghettoVCB4i.

    Thank you!

    vmkfstools is a tool for working with VMDK, has nothing to do with stereotypes. In the Busybox unsupported console, the only tool that you can use for some of the management of the virtual computer is vim-cmd , which is about a wrapper for VMware vimsh, take a look at our site for more information:

    Basically, you're going to do something like the following:

    vim-cmd "vmsvc/snapshot.create XXXX FIRST_SNAPSHOT MY_FIRST_SNAPSHOT_1"

    where XXXX is VmId to the virtual machine that is retrieved from vmsvc/getallvms, then you are going to deliver the snapshot.remove

    Here are some other useful commands dealing with snapshots:

    Vim - cmd vmsvc/snapshot.removeall \[VmId]

    [[[vim - cmd vmsvc/snapshot.remove \[VmId\] \[removeChildren\] \[snapshotLevel\] \[snapshotIndex\]

    Vim - cmd vmsvc/snapshot.get \[VmId\]

    ghettoVCB4i uses vimsh to do these things as well.

  • How can I get audio to not start when the button is clicked?

    I am new to adding audio to slides, buttons, click boxes.  Import the recorded voice on the overall slide of files sounds easy enough.  However, there are several buttons that display a legend I want audio to not start when the button is clicked.  I added audio just for this button, but it starts when the slide begins.

    How can I get audio to not start when the button is clicked?


    Audio playback when the assigned object with the audio appears. That's why hear you when the button appears.

    Try to assign audio instead to the object that is displayed when you click the button. Perhaps the legend.

  • File is present, but does not appear in the search

    I have occasionally to store a pdf file, I received as an attachment to e-mail and discover that the file does not appear in a search, even if it is in the directory, and I have no problem opening it. I can solve the problem by renaming the file, and then rename it again, back to what it was originally.

    I decided that the file name does not begin with special characters, and the status bits seem normal. But I have two files, using the same naming format, and one of them shows up in a search, the other is not the case.

    If someone can explain to me what is happening here, I can probably came up with a remedy on mine. I'm just confused as to what is the cause.

  • a/o/u not used by the search function for the adobe reader

    Hi guys,.

    I tried to look up German words (which will contain a, o, u, ss pp etc.) in pdf files using adobe reader configurable search.

    Unfortunately the umlaute appear to be "swallowed" by the search function.

    e, g,

  • How can I Data Modeler does not generate constraints on NNC_ tables?

    Hi all

    Unfortunately I have not found the answer using Google ;-)

    When I generate my DDL scripts on my model on some tables Data Modeler (version 4.0.0) automatically generates constraints on the columns of the table "NNC_" for example:







    Name VARCHAR2 (100),

    BZ_Bezeichner VARCHAR2 (100),

    GUI_Bezeichner VARCHAR2 (100),


    XML_Document XMLTYPE


    How can I avoid this? I like to just get something like this:




    Kilometrierung VARCHAR2 (20) NOT NULL,

    Letzte_Aenderung DATE NOT NULL,

    Knotentyp VARCHAR2 (100) NOT NULL,

    Name VARCHAR2 (100),

    BZ_Bezeichner VARCHAR2 (100),

    GUI_Bezeichner VARCHAR2 (100),

    Spurplanabschnitt_ID NUMBER NOT NULL,

    XML_Document XMLTYPE


    Thank you


    Hi Matthias,

    The NOT NULL Constraint clause appears likely because 'Not Null Constraint Name' property is set to the column.  (It is indicated on the Panel "forced by default and ' in the column properties dialog box.)

    To stop these products, you can go to the Data Modeler/DOF of the preferences page (on the Tools menu) and set the option 'generate short form of NO forced NULL.

    Note that there now is a forum specifically for the Data Modeler: SQL Developer Data Modeler


  • How can I make a top layer "transparent" for the end user?

    Hi guys,.

    You have a quick question.

    I am working on a custom map generator and I was wondering if there was any way I could keep a downloaded image editable to the end user. The end user will be able to choose which model they want to frame the picture with. The problem is, even with transparency that chose the framework acts as a layer, and once the uploaded image was placed on the area of transit, end-user lose the ability to change/scale/tilt this image. I want them to still be able to do this even with the model over their image.

    Can anyone think of a solution to this? All tips are greatly appreciated.

    You literally chop each image. To keep things reasonable update you can use Photoshop to slice the graphics, save to the external png to import into. If a picture has 4 edges, you cut out the 4 sides, import into Flash and put back together within a single Sprite or MovieClip. Any area within this sprite who does not object real is real transparency and won't call a click action.

    Don't forget, the hitboxes are rectangular. If you have an oval frame where the edges are asking you to create images with transparency on their edges, which will be clickable. If you don't immediately understand what I mean by this draw randomly just a circle in flash, convert to the clip. Now draw your cursor around what we consider the part 'top' of this frame and note how many inside you also complete capture at the same time. That will all be clickable. So that the user can 'see' their picture behind the frame, but when they click they accidentally get the framework in place.

    Picture is worth a thousand words (sharp image at random):

    If you cut the oval frame into 4 pieces (it's the top of course), the transparent area, you see in the picture will be part of the hitarea for the frame. This can be just as confusing to customers in this situation. If most of your managers have little or no transparency (very square upwards) so it will be not a problem. Just like the problem you are having now, no bitmap transparency will be clickable, even if you cut the sides to the top. The Center where there is no bitmap cannot be clicked through to mess with the photo behind the frame.

    So, this makes it a little more desirable transparency detection.
