Windows Key on Keyboard


Thread Starter

Sahay R R

The Windows key on the new keyboard always brings up the START control bar giving access to all the windows applications. While running HMI package on the PC, I don't want someone to press this key on the keyboard and then invade the PC's hard disk. Is there a way to in software to disable or inhibit this key's function? A password protected operation of this key may be acceptable.

Any suggestions??

If you are using Win NT then setting up a user policy will allow you to customise what is available to the login from the start menu. It is possible to remove all applications so that all that remains is the windows help and any startup program shortcuts.
