Mac like hotkeys on new Windows 10 Feb.2018

09 Feb 2018, 17:04

So despite me turning off windows update on via regedit, services, and delayed update + metered connection it still updated and forced the update down my throat and now my scripts don't work.

I rebound my alt keys to Rwin and my Win Keys to Lalt using KeyTweak but now I get Window's system hotkeys triggered when I try to use commands.
(I prefer the Mac keyboard layout now with command and alt swapped.)

For example win+c triggers win+ctrl+c and then turns on color filters instead of copy. Does anyone else have this problem or have a workaround?
This is the code I was using before and worked great until ... Windows.

Code: Select all

#NoEnv				; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn  			; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input  		; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  	; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
				

If not A_IsAdmin		; Force admin mode
{
   Run *RunAs "%A_ScriptFullPath%"
   ExitApp
}

#s::^s				; Make Ctrl + S work with cmd (windows) key
#a::^a				; Selecting
#c::^c				; Copying
#v::^v				; Pasting
#x::^x				; Cutting
#o::^o				; Opening
#f::Send ^f			; Finding
#z::^z				; Undo
#y::^y				; Redo
#t::^t				; New tab
#w::^w				; close tab
#q::Send !{F4}			; Close windows (cmd + q to Alt + F4)

#d:: ^d
#b:: ^b
#i:: ^i 
#u:: ^u
#+n:: ^+n
#+t:: ^+t
#space::SendInput !{Space}
Also if anyone knows how to permanently stop windows updates and/or permanently disable windows hotkeys AGAIN please let me know as well.

Probably you could try a different #MenuMaskKey ( https://autohotkey.com/docs/commands/_MenuMaskKey.htm ) if you get unwanted Ctrl presses with the Win key... (but I don't seem to have such a problem on my Win 10, so I don't know if this could help).

Didn't seem to help, but thanks for trying. My problem is further complicated because I use synergy to control my mac and lwin works as command so I can't outright remove windows key either.
