Windows Key On Keyboard?

Regedit time!

 

Open regedit, and go to this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout

 

Look for "Scancode Map"... If it's there, edit it, if not add it (Binary Value).

 

Edit Scancode Map so it has this value:

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 00 00 5B E0 00 00 5C E0 00 00 00 00

 

Save and reboot.

Can't say that I've really ever looked for another way. I've done this, and it's worked for me..

 

Though my ultimate goal is to find a nice keyboard without the stupid windows key on it.

Just get an old school "clank-clank" sounding Fujitsu keyboard from the XT-386 days and use a DIN-5 to PS/2 converter. :P:lol:

hmm reminds me aside from alt tabbing and using the indows key what other ways can u minimiza games? Cod wont do it with either of these and i wish it would.

look in the manual and see if it mentions changing an option to make it "windowed" which is another word for making it alt-tab-able. Sometimes, simply adding "-w" or "-window" (minus the quotation marks) in the target for the exe makes it run in a window.

 

But yes, ctrl-alt-del technically works, though it could screw your game up sometimes.
