Ahoj Saynay,

 

Welcome to the Community,

 

Just to clarify, you want to disable the minimizing or you want to get rid of on screen indicators?

 

The game minimizing is probably a game setting.

 

Are you running game from Steam?

 

Which game is it?

 

Pekny Den,

So, been digging around and found a few things online concerning this issue.

 

It seems to be a bug across multiple machines, all vendors, running DX 11.

 

before you start the game, go into your processes and turn off "BTTray.exe"

 

If you want a more permanent fix, but I stress, do this at your own risk as messing with regedit can really mess your machine if not done correctly.

 

Make sure you back up your machine just in case.

 

1. Press WinKey and type "regedit" > navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Widcomm > BTConfig > General > KeyIndication

2. Change the value of "KeyIndication" from "1" to "0"
3. Reboot

 

 

 

 See if that does the trick.

I found this like one hour ago and it worked, so my problem is solved.

1. Windows Key + R
2. Type "regedit" and hit Enter
3. Click Yes
4. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Lenovo/Energy Manager.
5. Double-click on NotShowMsgAgain.
6. Change the value to "00 00 00 00".
7. Click Ok, then restart.
8. Tap Caps Lock repeatedly after you get to the desktop, and the pop-up should appear, letting you choose "No Thanks".

 

anyway ur solution doesnt work anyway coz i cant find any "Widcomm" but tnx for late respond...

Hi Saynay,

 

Thank you for getting back to us with the Solution.

 

Apologies for not getting back to you sooner  I was researching this for a few days and testing out on this model, since we only have 1 of these here and it was being used I didnt get a chance to try it till today.

 

 

By the way, what game are you playing?

Unfortubately, neither the solutions stated above nor the ones I found by googling around worked for me. Any luck with your research?
