Stop unload skin requests

Post by JohnCoool »

Sometimes when I use certain key combination on the desktop of windows I get a set of instructions asking me if I want to unload all skins (I am not sure what are the key combinations. I would be using ctrl+alt+del .... but I might be pressing something else by mistake).

I am unable to find hot key section in the program settings.

How can I stop this from happening again?

Rainmeter has no hotkeys in it. Something else is causing this.

There is also no bang that will unload all running skins, and certainly nothing that will pop up any kind of dialog.

I'd look to see if you don't have a skin that uses the Hotkey plugin.

This message comes up not on certain hotkey when Rainmeter is running, but if you hold on Ctrl when start Rainmeter.
To load the already "normally" loaded skins, just click No. This starts Rainmeter normally, loading the existing layout. If you click Yes, the default illustro layout is loaded.

Oh I see.

That is why it only happens sometimes.

I need to disable this feature because it is causing security risk for me.

I disabled right click with a script once.

Can you propose a script to disable this?

Not sure what would you like to disable. To not let Rainmeter to show up the above dialog when you hold down Ctrl when you start it? If so, this is not possible.

Just don't hold down CTRL while you start Rainmeter.

And as far as I can say, there is not possible to disable Rainmeter to not take into account the Ctrl hold down on start, right?

There is not.
