Keyboard Filter (Standard 8 Module Reference)

7/8/2014

Review the settings, dependencies and any notes for the Keyboard Filter module in the Windows Embedded 8 Standard (Standard 8) module catalog.

This module enables you to suppress undesirable key presses or key combinations. Normally, a customer can use certain Windows key combinations like Ctrl-Alt-Delete or Ctrl-Shift-Tab to alter the operation of a device by locking the screen or using task manager to close a running application. This may not be desirable if your device is intended for a dedicated purpose, however, you can use Keyboard Filter to suppress any key press or key combination.

Keyboard Filter has been redesigned for Windows Embedded 8 Standard (Standard 8), and works with both physical keyboards and the standard Windows On-Screen Keyboard. Keyboard Filter also detects dynamic layout changes, such as switching from one language set to another, and continues to suppress keys correctly, even if the location of suppressed keys has changed on the keyboard layout. For more information, see Keyboard Filter Overview.
