Disable Windows Mobility Center in Windows 7 or Vista

By Lowell Heddings on August 23rd, 2007

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:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\MobilityCenter

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.
