  • Is there any way to prevent alt+enter from putting Steam into Big Picture Mode? | 2021-10-15
    There is a tool called that allows you to rebind any keys or shortcuts as you want. You can use that tool to disable this shortcut globally or just when Steam window is active. To do the latter use the following code for you AutoHotkey script: #IfWinActive, ahk_exe steam.exe !Enter::return The first line ensures the rebind works only when steam.exe is the active window and the second line rebinds Alt+Enter to nothing.

    AutoHotKey is very popular for Windows but hard to use and might take a while to set up.

    Yup, you can still do that. AutoHotkey is a wonderful tool for this. You can intercept input events globally, and transform them or send completely different events to the target app.

    For example, I use AutoHotkey to implement my JKLmouse program, which turns certain keyboard events into mouse movement for precise control. It's similar to the MouseKeys that comes with Windows, but made for laptop keyboards without numeric keypads.

    And yes, you could definitely do that Minesweeper hack in AutoHotkey! :-)

  • Dear Microsoft: If you're touting your interface to be the big point of your update, then be sure as hell to have it done before pushing it to the public. | 2021-08-27
    It's really ugly and what's worse is it's not consistent with the win11 style, I mean, the rounded corner style... this one is much better.
  • I was really hoping that they would do something about this ugly volume OSD | 2021-08-26
  • This thing needs to go away sooner rather than later. I don't know how long this ugly slider has been a part of Windows but it needs to be retired for a slider more like what we saw on Windows 10X but more polished since 10X wasn't as polished as Windows 11 in general. | 2021-08-09
