How to disable or change the Windows+S hotkey in OneNote

For OneNote 2007, see Changing the OneNote Screen Clipping and New Side Note keyboard shortcuts. I believe this article will answer your question.

In short, look at this registry key:


There are two DWORD values ScreenClippingShortcutKey & NewNoteShortcutKey. The default values are:

  • ScreenClippingShortcutKey: 0x53
  • NewNoteShortcutKey: 0x4e

If we look in this ASCII table:

In row 5, column 3 (0x53), we see the S. So, this is where the S of the hotkey is set.

Change it to another value according to the ASCII table to adjust the hotkey.
