Remap Calculator Button?

HP Recommended
15-EN000z
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've read through posts about remapping the omen key to something else, except it doesn't apply to me. 

 

I use the omen key daily. It comes in handy. What's really inconvenient, is the calculator button. I'm constantly pressing Windows + Calc key instead of Windows + PrntScrn when taking screenshots. I also sometimes press it instead of the omen key. 

 

I have literally no use for it. It's just gotten to the point of driving me over the edge haha. Really frustrating. Was hoping I could switch it to something like File Explorer, or Chrome. Maybe even to Recycle Bin.

Run Registry Editor (regedit)

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AppKey\18

Create there a String Value and name it ShellExecute. Double click on it and set a new value.

 

The value can basically be any command you want to run like path to chrome executable, explorer for File Explorer, shell:RecycleBinFolder for Recycle Bin, shutdown command whatever. Or leave it empty if you just want to disable it.

Would I just type something like "Task Manager?"

 


Edit: Got it working. Thanks!
