  2. How to disable Alt - F4 permanently?

    Hi. In my University people are pressing Alt - F4 on peoples laptops to annoy them. I wondering how I can permanently disable this shortcut without and external program. I'm fine with going into reg-edit. I have windows 10 and full control over my laptop
    (other than internet blocks).

  3. Is alt+ f4 and shut down the same as shutting down from the start menu

    A pretty dumb question, but is it any different? For example:

    If I shut down the computer with alt + f4 and shut down, boot it, and then if I shut it down will it start updating windows automatically? (if I havent updated yet)
