HotKeys not working

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1
DisplayFusion Pro v3.3.1

For some odd reason my HotKeys are no longer working. The only one I use alot is to switch a window between screens, and I do not use it alot. Just noticed a couple days ago that this no longer works.

Did a search and saw some info related to Logitech issues. I am using a new Logitech Wireless Optical Trackball with SetPoint 6.20.

Anyone got a clue?

There were some issues with the Logitech GKeys software but as far as I know everything should be ok with SetPoint. Did this issue only start occurring after you setup the new Logitech mouse?

Interesting, can you verify that it's the SetPoint software by closing it and restarting DisplayFusion (right-click the system tray icon and choose exit, then launch from Start Menu) to see if the HotKeys work without SetPoint running?

Thanks!

I completely uninstalled SetPoint and rebooted. Still can't use the HotKeys.

I've even gone a setp further and uninstalled my software for my Logitech headphones, so there is no Logitech software on my computer at all. Unfortunately i'm still getting the same issue. The main feature i'm wanting is the hotkey that moves the active window to the next screen.

Are there any other pieces of software that are known to cause this issue? Maybe LogMeIn or Dropbox?

Are the hotkeys that aren't working the standard Win7 hotkeys?

the hotkey i'm wanting to use is Alt+Window+X

thats not a standard Win7 hotkey

I installed DisplayFusion on my laptop tonight which is running the same exact Logitech software and the hotkeys work fine on it. I think I might try uninstalling LogMeIn and see if it makes any difference.

Interesting! Another thing you could try is booting into Safe Mode, starting DisplayFusion, and seeing if any of the hotkeys work. That way you can confirm whether something running in the background is affecting it or not.

Well i was up till about 2am last night but i finally figured it out.

Turns out it was actually my keyboard.

While uninstalling one piece of software after another, I accidentally hit the WinLogo button and realized it didn't bring up my start menu. Turns out I couldn't use my WinLogo key at all. I got really frustrated and pulled my keyboard from my computer and hooked it up to a spair computer. The problem followed it.

This really ticked me off since I have a pretty expensive Razer Lycosa keyboard that I absolutely love, so I did some digging around the net. Turns out that my keyboard has a special feature where you can actually disable the WinLogo key so you do not accidentally hit it in games, and somehow I had done the special keystroke that disabled it. I did the same RazerLogo+WinLogo keystroke again to re-enable it, and now all is well.

Go figure!!!!

Interesting! It would be handy if the keyboard had some kind of indicator to let you know that it's been disabled

Oh well, glad to hear you got it sorted out. Good work tracking it down!

Hey I know this is an old topic but I agree it was your keyboard. But its not broken -- there is a gaming mode that can be turned off an on. This feature prevents you from accidently hitting the windows key and puling you to the desktop. It also disturbs the windows hotkeys.

Greetings from the year 2020.

We still don't have flying cars, and even reality itself sorta "jumped the shark" in terms of absurdity, so there's little insight I can provide.

However I offer my sincere thanks to you ancients scribes for maintaing this historical log of past quandries and trails.

I too have encounted the same issue, as I have many times actually without recognizing the ignating factor or reasons it stopped.

Yet the problems of today were apparently the problems of yesteryear as well. And I learned a lil something about my keyboard as well.

Those of us who are neglectful of history are doomed to repeat it.

Thanks

Also wanted to say that I've been struggling with this issue for days, and it happened at exactly the same time that I decided to start testing out DisplayFusion to see if it could help me automatically dim my other monitors when I start a game (and it could!).

Somehow when I was setting things up with the multi-monitor taskbar, I must've hit the secret key combination on my keyboard (Glorious Mechanical Keyboard -- this is actually the name, not me being a smartass). On that keyboard it was FN+Windows Key

So thank you for having this information available!
