  • How to disable the left Alt key as the taskbar pop-ups when you try to play the game then press the left Alt key

    Original title: left disabling Alt Taskbar pop-up Menu window


    I have problems with the taskbar. Every time I tap my left Alt key twice, then left Alt + (1-6) a context menu appears. It's the same thing as right click a tab on your taskbar for anyone who is struggling to recreate my problem. Right Alt does not cause this problem.

    It is very bad news for me as the focus of changes in context menu of what I do. I play video games in my free time and have game left keybinds for Alt + 1,2 & 3. I will support on these keybinds quickly all while playing. This will cause the context menu for taskbar activate and I'll be tabbed out of my game.

    I searched for weeks trying to solve this problem and I have not found any that is worked. I tried to disable the jump lists. I tried to change the registry for a right click on the taskbar. I saw patches of this forum and several others and nothing I found works.

    Recently, I contacted Microsoft to the it Department by phone and said they knew exactly how to fix this and if I have to pay $50 to one of their technicians have to connect to my computer that they would have this problem corrected in the blink of an eye. I find this limit extortion honestly and I hope someone had this problem and can provide steps on fixing it.

    Thank you for your answer, but the answer you provided is for a question that is different from what I was living. Your link has solved a problem with someone who has the taskbar pop up when their mouse/cursor passes over. My problem was to have a drop down of the taskbar appear whenever I type left Alt + 1/2/3/4 etc.

    However, I have since fixed. If there is anyone else out there with this problem, it's a hardware problem with my keyboard. I couldn't get anyone to recreate my problem by pressing left Alt + 1, etc. (although you can recreate my problem to click with the right button on a program in the task bar), so I reset my left Alt key. After resetting my left Alt key this problem does occur more (yay)

    Thank you

  • Satellite Pro P - how to disable the hot keys for camera assistant?

    Is it possible, and how, to disable the shortcut keys for the camera wizard?

    The default keys interfere with shortcuts of Microsoft Office (Word) - for example Alt + F9 to show/hide codes field to turns on the properties of camera assistant, Alt + 10 screen settings of camera etc.

    I find this very frustrating.


    Of course you can turn it off.
    You must remove the software from the camera in msconfig start up.

    So go to start-run-msconfig online online
    Go to the Startup tab and disable the camera software. Restart the computer laptop and that s all!

    How to disable the F1 help key in windows vista

    There is no way to do this under Vista.  It is possible that some 3rd party programs won't work - but most don't work with some keys and function keys are often not included.   I spent almost an hour to research and come up with only the following (and that cause extremely advanced registry editing that I have does not feel comfortable recommending that even I would have trouble following him).

    Here is a program which doesn't specifify no limitation (although this means not it not all):  You can do a test to see if it does the trick.

    If this is not the case, look for "keyboard remapping in Vista" in Bing, Google, www.tucows.comand to see if you can find a program that works (and works with Vista).

    I hope this helps.

  • How can I disable the automatic IP Configuration in Windows 7?

    Is someone can you please tell me how to disable the automatic IP Configuration in Windows 7?  I am happy to change the registry to implement if necessary.


    Because my PC sometimes gives an IP address like  This is because Windows has detected that your computer is connected to a network, but the PC has not yet given an IP address by DHCP on the network, so Windows Server the automatic IP Configuration comes in and gives the PC an IP address that starts with 16.254.

    The reason why that the DHCP server on the network has not given an IP address was because the network is coming a few seconds before the DHCP server comes up, and the automatic IP Configuration Windows comes too quickly.

    Of course, once the PC has an IP starting 169.254, he cannot communicate with my router that has an IP address that starts with 192.168.  The only cure, outside re-booting, is to issue the ipconfig/renew command to obtain an IP address from the router DHCP server.

    If I can turn off the automatic IP Configuration of Windows (I could disable in XP) then I can avoid this error.

    One option that you have.

    You can set the IP address to a static IP address.

    Control Panel
    Network and Internet
    Network and sharing Center

    Click on connection to the Local network (a separate dialog box opens Local Area Connectin status)
    Click on Properties (opens the dialog)
    Click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
    Click on Properties

    On the general tab, move the radio button to use the following IP address:
    Here you can set the IP address that you want to use the machine.

    Example of Configuration:

    You will need to note the IP DNS addresses you need more.
    If you like you can even use a set of public DNS servers for free.

    Please note that the sample configuration assumes routers IP is, check please. :)

    Good luck
