If you are an active user of the PC, then most likely you are familiar with the situation when, during work or play, you accidentally click on one of the keyboard buttons that has the Windows icon and thereby provoke the system to collapse all windows and open the menu " Start". Just to ensure that this kind of situations in your life was several times less, we suggest that you learn how to disable the Windows key in Windows 10, since this process is quite simple, but thanks to he, you have annoying situations with the OS will be much less.
At the initial stage, in order to go to the system settings, you should open a window called "Run" (opens by clicking on "Win + R"), then enter the command "regedit" in the search string.
The new window will be called "Registry Editor", here you need at the beginning only the left column with folders, where we go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", then open "SYSTEM", go to "CurrentControlSet", now move to "Control" and the last folder, which is opened is "Keyboard Layout".
Now, all in the same window called "Registry Editor", you have to refer to the horizontal menu, which is located at the top of the window. The essence of this menu is the following ... Click the "Edit" button, the context menu opens and through the "Create" item, you go to the second context window where the "Binary parameter" item is located.
Note that after all of the above, if it's done correctly, in the right part of the "Registry Editor" window there is a new parameter that needs to be renamed to "Scancode Map", then press the "Enter" button on the keyboard.
Now, we are interested in the new binary parameter "Scancode Map" to which we must point the mouse cursor and right-click on it to select "Edit binary data" in the opened context menu.
As soon as the window with the name "Changing the binary parameter" opens, you will immediately have to enter into it the following data:
- 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
- 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 5B E0
- 00 00 00 00

At the last stage, which finally allows you to disable the Windows key in Windows 10, you need to reboot the operating system and only after that, it will be possible to enjoy the result you wanted from your system by adding all the above settings.
