How to Disable Buttons on Keyboard in Windows 7, 8 & 10


This article explains how to easily disable some of your keyboard buttons on Windows PC.

There are reasons why we may want to disable one or many of the keyboard buttons on our Windows PC.

Sometimes, we may just want to deactivate some specific keys on our PC. Maybe because they are always not in use, some other times some buttons may be misbehaving, and we feel removing those buttons will make things right.

There are many reasons why PC users may want to disable specific keys from their keyboards.

In my case, just before writing this post, my Down Button was pressing itself automatically and affecting everything I am doing on my laptop.

So I just decided to disable it. Now every other thing is working just fine.

In this article, I will show you how to deactivate a specific button on your Windows PC.

What am explaining here is how I disabled my “Down Button” and restore my PC to normal. But the Down Key is no longer functional, I now use the mouse on the onscreen keyboard as an alternative, before I replace my keyboard.
