C-S-s-a as well. On Windows 98 and ME, the hotkey registration is more restricted. The desired hotkey must always be fully specified, and wphantom-key-code can be customized to achieve desired results. The function wunregister-hot-key reverses the effect of wregister-hot-key for its argument key sequence. The default value is t. Its value can be one of the symbols hyper, super, meta, alt, control, or shift for the respective modifier, or nil to appear as the key apps.
The default is nil. If its value is nil the default , the key will produce the symbol lwindow. Setting it to one of the symbols hyper, super, meta, alt, control, or shift will produce the respective modifier. Many users find this frustrating.
The variables wpass-lwindow-to-system and wpass-rwindow-to-system determine whether the respective keys are passed to Windows or swallowed by Emacs. If the value is nil, the respective key is silently swallowed by Emacs, otherwise it is passed to Windows. The default is t for both of these variables.
For this reason, wregister-hot-key cannot override this key combination - it always locks the computer.
