Have you ever found yourself in a situation where the keyboard keystrokes or F keys at the top of the key within Word interfere with the third-party programs you are using? If so, you may want to disable them. In this post, we will show you how to disable the keyboard keystrokes or F keys in Word.

First, make a list of all the keys that you want to disable. Then, come up to the file tab and click on options. You will see the Word Options dialog box pop up. Then, come down to the category which is “Customize the Ribbon” and click on that. At the bottom of that box, you will notice the “Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize” option. Click on it to open the “Customize Keyboard” box.

Next, select the template that you want to disable it from, as you must remove the keystroke from the template, not the copy of the template or document of the template. If you are working from a customized template, find that template and then remove the keyboard.

For example, if you want to remove the F12 key that is associated with the “Save As” command, select the “Save As” command, click on the key associated with it, and click on the “Remove” button. Save changes in the normal template and the keystroke will be removed from that template.

To run through it again, let’s say you want to remove the F5 key associated with the “Go To” command. Select the key, save changes in the normal template, and then hit the “Remove” key. Finally, if you want to remove the F7 key associated with the “Spelling and Proofing” tools, select the key, save changes in the normal template, and hit “Remove.”

By following these simple steps, you can disable the keyboard keystrokes or F keys within Word that may interfere with the third-party programs you are using. We hope you found this helpful!
