Win Key Global Shortcut

Post by wickyd » Tue Aug 06, 2013 10:41 pm

Version: 1.3.3.658 (x64)
OS: Windows 8 Pro 64-bit

I am not able to set Win+Z as the global shortcut key for any action. I want to use that shortcut key to restore Everything once minimised. This is possible in version 1.2.1.371.

If I press the Win key, while under Everything Options Keyboard, nothing happens. The Ctrl, Alt and Shift keys do however work as expected.

Working for me (though I'm on XP).
Perhaps the Win key works differently in Win8 ?

Looks like a lot of Win key's, including Z, are preassigned in Win8:

Excellent diagnosis, Win+Z is pre-defined in Windows 8.

If I press Win+A, Everything accepts the keyboard shortcut and works.

Thank you!

See yoyomaah's posting in Win-F thread for a possible solution
