F1 Key keeps bringing up help screen while running program under XP Mode


  • Can't stop F1 key in XP Mode from popping up a help screen while running a program under XP Mode.  Program works fine, but requires me to hit F1 key often and I have to close pop up screen every time it appears

  • Hi,

    First, Please confirm the Windows XP Mode window is active and the application also is active under XP Mode. If it is not, of course the Help Screen will pop up when you press the F1 button.

    Meanwhile, Can you find any options to change the F1 button to the others in the application’s preference? If so, please try to change it.

    If you want to disable the Help Screen, You need to disable the Help and Support service.

    (start->type services.msc->press enter)
