Hyper Key + Windows MS Office Web Launcher - FIXED
Just thought I would post a fix to something that took a while to troubleshoot. I eventually did simply find this fix in a forum but that was after trying some different methods. Maybe it will save someone some time.
I am running parallels + Windows 10. Some recent update caused my system to start launching MS Office prompts after using my caps lock hyper key (shift/ctrl/option/command; Karabiner). After multiple attempts to uninstall Office only to have it reinstalled and visible again in my Apps list, I did the manual uninstall office procedure. First time = back to same prompt again.
I did not realize this was triggering the Web Launcher for Office. Turns out the windows 10 hotkey for doing this is shift/control/alt/win (from forum searching; Windows chat support did not know this).
The fix was running the following in cmd prompt:
REG ADD HKCU\Software\Classes\ms-officeapp\Shell\Open\Command /t REG_SZ /d rundll32
I found the fix at the following link:
Not specifically KM related but if you use Karabiner and Hyper Key for KM macros - they are too valuable to lose functionality.
Hope it saves someone time that I wasted.
