How to disable hotkeys in Adrenalin 2020 (19.12.2) driver?

Jump to solution

New driver takes over hotkeys like Ctrl+Shift+U, Ctrl+Shift+R and displays notifications suggesting to enable something unneeded. This conflicts with other software where these hotkeys are assigned for something useful instead. For, example Ctrl+Shift+U is Edit, Advanced, Make Uppercase command in Visual Studio. 

How do I disable AMD Adrenalin hotkeys completely? The only hotkey related setting I could find is this and it does not help:

I went through all the entries for hotkeys in the registry. These are the ones I found, setting the values to "None" disables the hotkey. Copying the following into notepad and saving it as a .reg file allows for easily disabling of them all.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\AMD\DVR]
"MicPushToTalkHotkey"="None"
"SaveInGameReplayHotkey"="None"
"SaveInstantGifHotkey"="None"
"SaveInstantReplayHotkey"="None"
"TakeScreenshotHotkey"="None"
"ToggleCameraHotkey"="None"
"ToggleDvrRecordingHotkey"="None"
"ToggleMicrophoneHotkey"="None"
"ToggleRegionRecordingHotkey"="None"
"ToggleRsPerfRecordingHotkey"="None"
"ToggleStreamingHotkey"="None"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AMD\DVR]
"MicPushToTalkHotkey"="None"
"SaveInstantReplayHotkey"="None"
"SaveInstantGifHotkey"="None"
"SaveInGameReplayHotkey"="None"
"TakeScreenshotHotkey"="None"
"ToggleCameraHotkey"="None"
"ToggleDvrRecordingHotkey"="None"
"ToggleDvrToolbarHotkey"="None"
"ToggleMicrophoneHotkey"="None"
"ToggleRsHotkey"="None"
"ToggleRsPerfRecordingHotkey"="None"
"ToggleRsPerfUiHotkey"="None"
"ToggleStreamingHotkey"="None"

Some stubborn ones still remain though, such as toggling the FPS counter, so I had to roll back to a previous version to get rid of all of them.

Thanks for ruining my day, AMD.

I was searching for this "global hotkey disable" option too with no success. Highly expecting this feature asap

OK, here it goes in registry under 

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AMD\DVR

Editing hotkey entry like I did above with following re-logon is a temporary workaround.

My temporary solution: if you go to HOTKEYS, you can select anyone of them (or all) and click BACKSPACE, this will make them NONE...

Yes. A lot of hotkeys can't be disabled. For example Antilag technology add some hotkeys to Alt and Ctrl. My eSport Game have a lot hotkeys like Alt+R, Alt+T, Ctrl+T and some else. So I hear endless beeps from driver 2020. This is make me very angry, and I switch off all new techs, because they ruin my gameplay expirience.

Alt+R is "ToggleRsHotkey" value in registry key I mentioned above, you can try erasing that to possibly teach Adrenaline better manners.

How did you go about going back to a previous version? These hotkeys for the FPS counter, and whatever L CTRL and L ALT do are driving me NUTS. I CANT DISABLE THEM ANY WAY!

So in new release of driver package they added more hotkey settings in the UI...

...without offering an option to disable this annoying nonsense!

Additionally, all the combinations were re-enabled. Thanks AMD for responding to this feedback.

PLEASE ADD A GENERAL BUTTON AMONG OPTIONS THAT DISABLES ALL OTHER HOTKEYS, WHEN I PRESS IT, I WANT TO ENABLE THEM BACK AGAIN, IT CONFLICTS WITH OTHER PROGRAMS, SO SO SO IRRITATING!
