Hi, dear ALL! :whistling:

I want to deny PrintScreen button for my users. Is it possible on Win 2k-XP machines (via Group Policy, registry or something)?

Thanks.

Yes, that is possible.
You just have to find the right keycode for the PrintScreen key.
Then you can disable it in the registry.
Haven't found the right code yet, though... :whistling:

and how can I disable it in registry (suppose that I have this key code)? :whistling:

I think that determining right key code should be easy - I just need to write simple app which will display code for each pressed key. No? :help:

You will have to add a registry entry on every computer

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
"Scancode Map"=hex:00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 02, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00, 3a, 00, 00, 00, 00, 00

This example will disable Caps Lock key
Check this link for more info:

for Prt Scr i have found: PRT SCR e0 2a e0 37 e0 b7 e0 aa | 99

a big word of caution, though, when changing the registry... your system can be completly corrupt when not applying the changes correctly.
