Is it possible to disable any default windows keyboard shortcut? I want to reuse win+space for something else, but it is already taken by the system to switch between keyboard layouts. Windows 8 allows you to select a different shortcut for it, which I did restoring windows 7's shortcut.

I guess it is possible with AutoHotKey, but I don't want more stuff running, even if lightweight.

Thanks!

You can't use Windows, Escape, Enter, Tab, Space, Print Screen, Shift, or Backspace keys to create a keyboard shortcut, at least not in shortcut properties window.
