Turning off the CTRL+ALT+arrow keys screen orientation shortcuts?

2011-07-27, 8:46 AM

Before you ask: YES, I know it's the Intel GFX UI that handles these hotkeys. And YES, I did uncheck the 'Enable hotkeys' checkbox. And YES, I even tried to have it checked while I changed the hotkey combination to something other than CTRL+ALT+arrow keys.

 

 

However, no matter what I do, it seems like the hotkeys still remain registered and rotate the screen when invoked. I even tried running GFXUI.exe as administrator in the hopes that'd fix the issue. But it doesn't.

 

So, would anyone have a way to permanently disable the hotkey feature in the Intel graphics properties?

Does killing hkcmd.exe in Task Manager work? What about the other three igfx processes?

Yeah - same Problem here on my new T420s - seems to be a bug in the intel driver...

 

Drives me crazy.

First, enable the hot keys in Intel Graphics Properties, and reassign the keys to different keys, for example Ctrl+Alt+7 (,8,9,0). Then you can disable the hot keys again. This releases Ctrl+Alt+Arrow keys for me.
