    Hi all and A Very Happy New Year to All!!

    How can I disable the keyboard Eject button as I keep pressing up against it lightly when typing and the tray ejects and it's really annoying... I think before you had to press it hard or for a sustained time to get the CD/DVD slot/tray to open.... now... the slightest tip and it will open.

    Is there any work around this...?

    Any suggestions most welcome.



    Regards,
    Anthony

    ditto on the above. I used it to set it to backspace.

    ditto on the above. I used it to change ⌘Q to ⌥Q.
    I get far fewer accidental App-quits that way.

    Karibiner no longer works for this for Sierra. You can use it to make another key also the eject, but the eject will still eject.
    This is the only tried and true solution that will work for most any keyboard. IMG_2754.JPG
