ALT + F2 and other keyboard shortcuts in Geforce Experience

… configure or deactivate. This is how it works!

After installing my new Geforce graphics card and the software tools, I quickly noticed that keyboard shortcuts such as ALT + F1 or ALT + F2 no longer worked. These are frequently used keyboard shortcuts in the Total Commander therefore very annoying.

Instead, all I got was the message “A supported game is required to use this feature”. I thought of Windows at first. Functionally, perhaps somehow in the direction of Gamebar, the thing has similar messages.


Geforce Experience

But it wasn’t, the Geforce Experience software is behind it. It uses the overlay function to grab a whole host of keyboard shortcuts. Unfortunately, these are not only active in games, but also when working. Well, real gamers only play games.

Disable completely

The easiest and quickest way is to deactivate the spook completely. To do this, we go to the settings and deactivate the overlay. This is my action of choice, I work most of the time and don’t need the rest.

Reconfigure keyboard shortcuts

Alternatively, the keyboard shortcuts can also be assigned differently so that they do not interfere. To do this, we go to the settings, where we find the “Keyboard shortcuts” and can view and change them here.
