How can I disable F1 in all MS Applications?  I'm looking to do this in any or all of the following:  Excel, Ppt, Word, Visio, Access, Project, MapPoint , etc...  The biggest burden is undoubtedly in Excel, Ppt, Visio.

I've read the instructions in a past question "disable F1 in Excel", but can't get the code to work.  I have Office 2002.  Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi girlygeek,
You can disable the F1 key for all applications with KeyTweak keyboard remapper. http://webpages.charter.net/krumsick/
I used this program to eliminate the CapsLock key, which I was constantly hitting at the wrong time.

Cheers!

girlygeek,
For reference purposes, the previous question about turning off the F1 key in Excel was http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/Excel/Q_20761101.html    I added some explanatory comments to that question to show how the code might be used in Excel 2002.

If the KeyTweak program is working for you, could you close out the question by choosing that comment as an Answer? Doing so adds the question to Experts-Exchange's databank of solved problems. The procedure is described in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/help.jsp#hs5

Thanks.
