Many gamers want to know how to disable the Windows key on their keyboard. Pressing it accidentally while playing a game on your PC can open the Start menu or trigger a "hotkey" keyboard shortcut that snaps you right out of what you're doing.
These hotkeys include "Windows key + R" for opening the Run box, "Windows key + D" for showing (and hiding) the desktop, and "Windows key + L" for locking your screen. Sometimes these shortcuts can be very useful, but when you're involved in something important, be it a game, video call, or intensive work, they can prove very annoying. Worst of all, there are two Windows keys on your keyboard, which doubles your chance of hitting one at an inconvenient moment.
