Many times I will accidentally fat finger the F1 key by accident and then have to wait a pretty long time for Help to open so I can immediately close it.

Does anyone know if there is a way to disengage this keystroke so that if I accidentally hit the button, nothing happens.

I would still like to be able to access help, but just not via the F1 key.

Thanks in advance!

You can probably disable the F1 key through the registry, or keyboard mapping... but that would do so for every program...
