Windows Mobility Center is a fairly useful tool for those of us using Windows 7 or Vista on a laptop computer, but might not be for everybody, especially since it takes over the Win+X keyboard shortcut.
If you would rather disable Windows Mobility Center, all it takes is a single registry tweak.
Manual Registry Tweak
Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search box and then navigate to the following key, creating it if it doesn’t exist:
Now create a new 32-bit DWORD entry in the right-hand pane called NoMobilityCenter and give it a value of 1.
Download Registry Tweak
The zip file contains both DisableMobility.reg and EnableMobility.reg files that will allow you to enable or disable the Mobility Center easily.
