  1. Win+L issue with apps closing after logging into the PC


    I usually leave my PC running overnight to afk in some games, but whenever I wake up and enter my desktop out of Win+L, I am forced out of a discord server AFK call just to test, I put myself into one and the game shuts down, same with chrome.


    I have sleep mode off.

  2. How to disable Win+L in Windows 10?

    As far as I know, there is no mean to disable only one Win+X keyboard shortcut.

    What I can suggest is to disable completely Win+X hotkeys:

    1. Type regedit in RUN or Start search box and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor.
    2. Now go to following key:
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    3. In right-side pane, create a new DWORD NoWinKeys and set its value to 1

    1. Close Registry Editor and restart your system. After reboot, all Win+X hotkeys will be turned off in your system.

    To re-enable them, delete the DWORD NoWinKeys created in step 3.
