    How to Lock Laptop Keyboard? (Just the keyboard.) - Win10


    Is there a way, without a brand X app, to lock the keyboard of a laptop? I want to have my laptop playing a video in a pubic place where I fear someone might accidentally or intentionally mess with the keyboard and interfere with the video. I've searched and researched but the few hits which relate to what I want to do don't seem to apply to my release/configuation.

    I wouldn't mind an app except that most apps seem to come with badware. Looked at the Windows app store but didn't find anything.

    Thanks for whatever help you can offer.

    Bob

    :)

  3. Disabling laptop keyboard

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    As per the description. Let me help you in resolving the issue.

    I suggest you follow the steps below and check if that helps:

    • Press Windows + X and select
      Device Manager
      from the list.
    • Find Keyboards in the list of devices and click the arrow to expand it.
    • Right-click on the internal keyboard and click Disable. If there is no Disable option listed, click
      Uninstall.
    • Click File>Exit. Your laptop’s internal keyboard should now be disabled.
    Note: If you had to choose Uninstall instead of Disable in step 4, the keyboard will be automatically detected and re-installed if you ever have the Device Manager scan for new hardware for some reason. If that happens you’ll need to repeat this procedure
    in order to uninstall it again.

    Hope the information helps. Please let us know if the issue persist and we will be happy to assist you further.

    Keyboard issue with Win10 update

    I was never able to install the updated driver using the compatibility mode because the directions I was given to enter the compatibility mode did NOT work as I stated in my previous response.

    The issue I am having is with the built-in keyboard on my Gateway model NV55 laptop. This built-in keyboard works fine with Win7; I updated to Win10 it quits working. I've looked over the compatibility lists and Gateway is not listed on there. The incompatibility
    hardware scan programs did NOT detect any problems every time the engineers tried running it and every time I ran it. A USB plugin keyboard works fine with the Win10 update on my LAPTOP but I am NOT carrying a KEYBOARD around with me just to use my LAPTOP.
    Are you saying that after all this Win10 does NOT WORK ON LAPTOPS??????
