Full screen video gaming on Windows has some hazards: tapping the Window key, using any sort of Windows shortcuts like ALT+TAB, or even clicking the mouse in the wrong spot if you’re using multiple monitors can crash your game. Read on as we highlight solutions for each of those problems.
Another way to disable the Windows button, especially the left one while playing FPS, is to REMOVE it completely from your keyboard. Just pop it right out. If you actually ever use the Windows-key, you'd still have the right on.
A program called UltraMon allows you to create shortcuts that will disable secondary monitor(s) when launching applications and will re-enable them when the app is closed. The feature is found here.
I had a keyboard that automatically disabled the Windows keys and also swapped the CTRL key and Caps lock key before launching an application.
