Hi, i just wanted to ask a quick question.

How do i disable a certain shortcut? When i'm playing games, mostly CS:GO, there's a certain shortcut that goes 'CTRL+SHIFT(Numbers 1-8)' which resizes the icons on the desktop from 1-8 with some custom sizes. It minimizes the game when i do that so how can i disable it completely? I do not want to disable all hotkeys as i use 'ALT-TAB', 'CTRL+C-V-X', 'WIN+R' etc...Is there a way to disable just this one from regedit or something? Thanks inforward!

Hi, you can block keys by using AutoHotKey. AHK allows you to create scripts to block keys. Running AHK by itself does nothing. It needs a script.

Download the Current Version of AHK from https://www.autohotkey.com/ and install it. Choose "Exit" from the setup when done.

Open Notepad and create a script. Here's some sample code for you:
Code:
; ^ stands for Control key
; + stands for Shift key
;
; We are going to "Return" which means do nothing when the key is pressed
;
^+1::Return
^+2::Return
^+3::Return
^+4::Return
Note: Only 1-4 keys change icons for me so that's all I included in the script.

For more keys, see this page: https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/Hotkeys.htm

Save the file as BlockKeys.ahk from Notepad.

To use the script, double click on it. You will see an "H" icon in your tray (near the clock). You can right click on that H icon anytime to close the script.

If the script works as you expect, right click on the BlockKeys.ahk file and choose Compile Script. Wait a minute and it will create an executable for you. At this point, you can uninstall AHK if you want (and delete the BlockKeys.ahk file) and just use the BlockKeys.exe file.
