There has to be a way to simply disable the default functionality of Alt + F4 (shutting down Windows or closing an application) using regedit, right? Without also potentially disabling the ability to shut the computer down at all? I can't find anything that's up-to-date about this. I use Alt+F# hotkeys for shortcuts in Lazy Nezumi, and I'd like to be able to use Alt+F4 for a shortcut, or if that's not an option, not have the application try to close if I accidentally hit Alt+F4.
I don't want to use AutoHotkey or write a script that has to constantly run in the background.
I've looked at these links, and I can't find anything usable here. This:
- uses AutoHotkey: How can Alt-F4 be disabled in Windows 7?
- mentions outdated registry path?: Is it there any way to prevent alt+f4 shutdown in windows
- links to the last thread: How to disable the Alt+F4 shortcut to signing of in Windows 10
- doesn't answer the question: How to disable Alt+F4 and Alt+Tab functionality for Windows 7, to use it on Kiosk?
