How do you disable the "close all button" or reprogram on the wireless Board and Mouse 300?

I would really like to be able to disable or reprogram the keyboard buttons that are not standard. They have a button that closes all the open windows and it's right next to the ESC key. I used the keyboard for 30 minutes and closed the windows accidentally twice. I called HP support and they told me nothing could be done so I had to pull the button off the keyboard so I don't hit it accidentally again. 

**bleep** would anyone want a close all button for? It seems pretty useless to me and is really annoying that you lose work becuase of it.

@EngJoe , welcome to the forum.


There may be a third-party app that will allow you to remap the keyboard.  Just a suggestion.  I feel your pain.  Engineers have a habit of giving us what they think is best for us, thus the "Close all" key! 😉
