how to disable the capacitive windows button on the bezel?

2016-04-06, 7:29 AM

This button is in both a stupid location and stupid design. 


Why would you put a capacitive sesnsing button on the benzel of the screen where people constantly have to touch with their wrist or forearm when using it in tablet mode?


Seriously Lenovo? Even the stupidest people know not to put capacitive buttons near areas where there might be a lot of skin contact.


If Lenovo made guns, they would remove triggers and replace it with capacitive buttons so that people can fire guns accidentally.


Now I have put a sticker over it for the time being to avoid pressing it by accident. 


Is there for me to disable the button in Windows 7 or through regedit?
