Disable Hot Keys?

Okay, here's a question I should have posted a very very long time ago.
I'd like to prevent the user from being able to bypass certain error
handling and updating functions that are programmed into the "Save"
command button. Some of my apps are still running in A97, but most are
now running in A2K or subsequent versions.

Is it possible to disable the use of hotkey combinations such as
"Ctrl+S" in an Access application? If so, how? And does the answer vary
depending on the version?

Is this an issue that can only be addressed in the OS?

You put your code in the wrong event. Move most of it to the
Form_BeforeUpda te event procedure. The Save command button just runs
RunCommand acCmdSaveRecord
That way, your special Save code executes regardless of how people try
to save a record.

Look at using the Autokeys macro for universal disabling.

Create a new Macro
Display the Macro Name column
In the Macro Name column type ^S
In the Action column Select Beep
Save the Macro and call it AutoKeys

That's it, Ctrl-S is now disabled in the database

Here's my newbie question: I have several VB forms which are all inherit a standard template form that I made. In my template form, I added a menu bar with some generic cut, copy, and paste functionality. I'd like to have the paste button disabled when the clipboard is empty, but I'm not sure how I should do this. Ideally, I suppose I'd like to constantly monitor the clipboard for data, (in a thread?) but I'm not even sure how I'd...

I have a datagrid that successfully allows editing and updating (with dataadapter.update command). I want the user to be able to edit the "text" in the datagrid, but i DON'T want the user to be able to DELETE rows. The OleDbCommandBuilder automatically creates the DELETE SQL statement. Is there any way I can disable it? If not, what approach should I be using? Thanks!

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
