Turning off Windows short cut keys

Q: Turning off Windows short cut keys

I have Windows 7 - I guess there is short cut keys - can ALL of them be turned off - It keeps moving files all over my hard drive - especially to the users\myName\folders - I dont use any Bill Gates folders for data files - he has a tendency to want to control you.

This is very annoying - I really hope there is some settings that allow you to turn of the Bill Gates Shortcut keys.

Preferred Solution: Turning off Windows short cut keys

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I've got problematic Dell Inspiron 1564. Suspected bad video.
When turned on, screen is blank and beep codes are "long-short-short-pause-short-short".
I can't find info about this beep code. I've found that long-short-short is bad video but what about next two short beeps?
Hard drive activity looks normal after that and I guess system works fine except graphics.External video output doesn't work.

Hi I didn't know where to put this, so my apologies if this is wrong. Whilst deleting a unused shortcut from the desktop I also accidently PERMANENTLY deleted all my overseas holiday photos, the movie i have been making for the last 5 years and god knows what elese. I am trying to remain calm and it has been such a blow that the reality has not yet sunk in (feeling a little numb, to be honest). I am already trying to recover the files with several programs but i was just wondering... is there anyway of banning or block the short cut <shift> <delete>. I never ever, want to do this again. Thankyou very much.

I am not sure whether this is the correct forum for this query.

I have a HP Pavilion TX1340 laptop running Vista Home Premium and in general it is working OK.

However just recently I have found that short cuts such as ctrl/C and ctrl/V no longer work and just result in the letters "c" and "v" appearing in the text.

Is this a Vista problem or a laptop problem and what is the solution?

A:Vista and short cut keys

It's most definitely not a *vista* problem - I use both copy and paste KB shortcuts hourly, heck, usually once every 3-5 minutes because I keep posting things like URLs here in posts....

I'd read your documentation on your laptop - you may have inadvertently enabled a Function key that is overriding the CTRL key....

Hi.. I have been having problems for a while with my laptop just turning off by itself.. It just completely shuts off, doesn't do the shut down process and doesn't restart.
Before it was occasionally and usually only when laptop was idle, but the past week it is doing it constantly, to point it's unusable.
I checked the power settings, all is fine. I have used it plugged in and unplugged and plugged in with the battery taken out, still does it, so I've ruled out the battery.
I checked for viruses, no problems there.
I restored windows to see if that would solve the issue but for some reason that failed at the end, so then I had no operating system installed.. I reinstalled a clean copy of windows but still doing the same thing.
(I left the computer on for long periods of time when windows wasn't installed and it never shut down once, don't know if that means anything..)
I took the bottom off the laptop and gave the fan a little clean just incase it was overheating, although the laptop doesn't get really hot so I don't think it is that.

I ran a quick test in Hardware Diagnositcs and:
'Short Drive Self-Test failed - U0DXJ4-75799E-XD7WMF-60R813

From a google search and some help I had from a few people I understand that means my hard drive is failing?

I want to know if anyone has any idea what could be causing my laptop to be turning off and is it likely to be the hard drive causing it to do that?

A:Laptop turning off by itself & Short Drive Self-Test Failure

A bad hard disk can easily cause your laptop to crash and turn off. There are certain apps out there that claim that they can re-map the bad sectors. However, I've never actually seen it work. You'll probably be best off by changing the hdd. Something you'll have to do as soon as possible as the drive definitely is dying.

Every so often I open my laptop and try to change the display brightness or use any of the hot keys I find that they've been turned off. I've had this laptop for over two years and this just started happening recently. I was able to install an older version of Lenovo Vantage so I now have the ability to turn the hot keys back on, however it seems that this setting never saves and it always reverts to hot keys off.

Hi, Try the following. Shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to launch the Start-up Menu and then select f10 to enter the bios menu.  Press f9 to load the defaults ( this is sometimes f5, but the menu at the bottom will show the correct key ), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.  Press f10 to save the setting and again use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter. Regards, DP-K

I have an ASUS laptop which runs windows 10 but does not have a CAPS/NUM/SCROLL lock indicator light. So naturally I enabled toggle keys, however 6 months on and the constant, irritating beep each time I press a button I need is starting to drive me insane. I have previously researched how to remove this 'toggle keys' feature after it would not disable if i just reversed the procedure i did to enable it. This involved using regedit and removing flags data and restarting the laptop. After numerous attempts this did not work. I have found related settings in the control panel and attempted to turn these off however I click apply and then ok but one return to the settings page the settings has not changes. I expect this is an issue in itself.

Would anyone be able to assist me on this and any help would be greatly appreciated,

Hi,  I recently updated my BIOS to the latest version using the System Update tool from Lenovo. For a while everything seemed to be working alright, as the BIOS was dowloaded and the computer rebooted. After rebooting the first time i was presented with the BIOS utility, and noticed that the update was progressing.  After 20 or so seconds the computer rebooted again. This is where my problems began. The computer immediately started beeping this short-short-short-long melody from the speakers. I thought this was normal, so I left the computer on for quite a while.  However, the beeping never stopped. Now the beeping resumed the instant i plug the power back in. I have yet been able to actually getting any sort of information on-screen telling me what's wrong.  I've tried following the "Recovering from a POST/BIOS update failure" on page 267 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual, but no luck with that so far. No matter where I place the jumper, the beeping code is the same short-short-short-long melody (yeah, it sounds like a disney tune or something). Any bright ideas? The machine type is a M92p 2992-B3G I'd hate to have to send it in for repairs, and Lenovo's Norwegian support line doesn't open until Monday, and there seems to be no way to call their 800-number in the states from here  Oh, and would this be covered by my warranty if repairs / motherboard replacement is the only way out? UPDATE #1: I found...

So I am having trouble with this toogle key thing. I turned in on by mistake a few weeks ago (great mistake). Probelm is from then onwards, when ever I turn it off it activates again after I restart my computer. 
I looked online and read that I have to change the "sign- in settings'' so that It doesn't turn on my toogle keys whenever I restart my laptop. I did thta hoping it would fix the issue, however it is still happening.
After I reset everything (ease of access + sing in settings) and restart my laptop it turns everything on again. It even resets my sing in settings so that y tootgle keys turn on afater restart (even though I change it everytime). 
I am now out of solutions and HATE THE ANNOYING TOOGLE KEY SOUND. I really just want help disabling it for good. can anyone help?

i have decreased the systemdrive (C) value down to 10 - 10 mb
so it can write a system dump atleast
instead i have given (G) the burden 1000 -1350 Mb

Sum it up the setting-window calls it 1000 mb for all units
windows recomends 3070 mb, but i have heard that you dont need so mutch
but perhaps im to low now?, or it have nothing to do with this freezes at all

Second theory
I have wery little free space left on 3 hard drives excluded the system drive (C) and a standard drive (G)
the possible problem is that its a splitted systemdrive, 10 Gb of it is that (C) with windows XP installed on, inside one of either these large drives with no space on (D) (E) or (F)

I delete two short cuts from the desktop and delete them from the recycle bin. Next time I boot up - lo and behold - there they are again.

The shortcut is a search engine through Internet Explorer. Every time I actrivate it, the default address is a site that is NOT WANTED. So I clear history, reset the default web page to 'use blank', delete cookies and temporary internet files. Close all and restart. Like magic they (the short cuts and unwanted page reference in history) still appear.

Originaly started with Vista 64, upgraded to Windows 7 64 bit.

From the day one computer would freeze from time to time in different situations, such as: while browsing the net in IE8, opening internal windows such as clicking on the 'games' icon, or during the game for instance while playing the BF2. Coursor will freeze or complete disappear, and freeze/delay would last between 5-10 seconds. Then everything perfect. Like on some kind of hold. In the moment of hold release it is possible to hear 1 click (sounds almost mechanical) noise coming out of the PC.

never experienced anything like that before. it is constant and annoying. Sometimes happens 3-4 times a day sometimes only once. Apparently, sometimes I even hear un-freezing click noise even when computer idles, not being used.

Any ideas??????

I have been experiencing problems with getting into msn explorer. When I try to log on it makes 5 attempts and then tells me it was unable to connect. After a week and a half I think I might have found the cause. The second page under settings gives the option of using an existing MSN account or an ISP other than MSN. The latter is true in our case, was chosen so about six months ago and worked fine up to the middle of last week. I can click on the second choice, but as soon as I leave that page it defaults back to the MSN choice. How can I disable whatever is happening so that my choice remains ?
