Hello.

 

I'd like to know if it is possible to switch a key bind of the keyboard to a "useless" key bind.

A key bind that would do nothing but would work for a push to talk for example.

I actually use "F4" for my push to talk (yes, that's not really smart, but it doesn't do a lot of things when I press it while writing something).

 

So I'm looking for a useless keybind that'll never do anything, anywhere :c.

 

Tell me if it's not clear, I'll try to paraphrase.

 

Thank you.

Aireil

Set it up as a keyboard shortcuts using Intellitype maybe? I have about 10 different shortcuts set up on my systems. Ctrl+Shift+whatever works great for Windows machines.

 

Here's how.

Thanks for the reply.

If I set up a shortcuts on Ctrl + Shift + Q for example, if I speak when I write, it will write QQQQQ, no ? :c

Or even within a software that uses Ctrl or Shift, wouldn't that be a problem ? :/

The software from Microsoft doesn't work for my Keyboard, so I used the one of the brand, I assigned Ctrl + Alt + G.

That's true, it does not write g or anything, but I can't write while talking and some software don't like it :(

Will it really change something from the rebind of the brand's software ? Not that I don't want to use AutoHotkey, but it doesn't seem user friendly ehehe :c

You can probably just disable the shortcut in the application. Have you looked through the options?? You may even be able to change it there.

If that was so easy ^_^

But, ~ would spam ~~~~~~~~~~~~ while writing :/.

 

I've find out how to create a Autohotkey script, remapped a key to Ctrl + Alt + g, but same problem :/.

Most apps (like Skype) let you toggle the "push-to-talk" key. Also, with a program called KeyTweak you can reassign any keyboard key to another. You could make ~ the F12 key or something.

 

I almost forgot1 I use a program called EventGhost that allows you to reassign a key as well, even prevent repeat presses due to holding down. It is a little complicated to set up versus something like KeyTweak.

Yes but it brings back the post #1 where it can be a little bit annoying in some softwares :/ (F12 for example is used a lot)
