Yoga 2 13 Windows Button

Hello, for the past few months the touch windows button on the monitor has been activating itself. It brings up the start menu while I'm working and when I carry it around in my backpack or even set it down on the table with the lid closed, it keeps vibrating due to the haptic feedback from the button. Is there a way to disable the button, vibration, or both? I went through the device manager and couldn't seem to find anything to disable.

 

EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm on windows 10. I don't remember if this used to happen on 8.1 that came preinstalled on the laptop.

 

Thanks.

Re: Yoga 2 13 Windows Button

I would very much welcome if Lenovo would put it in the Lenovo Settings that we could disable this button. It cost nothing to do that and many users would welcome it.

 

Apart from that, I am not a specialist on this, but I could imagine the physical widnows button must be using some kind of process or service that could potentially be killable or a value could be changed in regedit. However, somebody would need to figure that out. I can't imagine the windows physical windows button runs without any process or service supporting it, so the tast narrows down to finding out what process or service is it and disabeling it. Sounds simple really, if someone could point out which service or process is it.

I have fixed it so it no longer opens start menu but the laptop vibrate all the time.

 

Problem I have is I cant afford time away from my laptop to get it fixed as I use it for business.

Hello,

 

You could disable both the Windows keys (keyboard and monitor) in the Registry.

I don't think you can disable just one of them this way.

 

- open the Registry by typing: regedit.exe

- navigate to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout.

- on the right panel, right-click and choose New, Binary value.

- name the new value: Scancode Map

- double click on it and type:

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 5B E0 00 00 00 00

 

( It should display like this:

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

02 00 00 00 00 00 5B E0

00 00 00 00 )

 

- press OK to confirm.

- reboot

 

The Windows key are disabled.

To open the Windows menu, you can use Ctrl-Esc. 

 

To enable the Windows keys back, just delete the Scancode Map key you added.

I think that I have found a simple solution.  My Lenovo's button stops vibrating when I leave open the file explorer.
