Disabling Keyboard With Shortcut macOS 13 Ventura


In macOS 13 Ventura, temporarily disabling your keyboard can be helpful for various reasons, such as cleaning the keyboard or preventing accidental keypresses. Here's how you can achieve this using a keyboard shortcut:

Using Accessibility Shortcuts:

Click on the Apple logo in the top-left corner of your screen and select "System Preferences."

In the System Preferences window, click on "Accessibility."

In the left sidebar, select "Keyboard" under the "Motor" section.

Enable the checkbox next to "Accessibility Keyboard."

Now, you can use the keyboard shortcut "Control + Option + Command + F5" to toggle the Accessibility Keyboard on or off.

When you activate the Accessibility Keyboard, it will provide an on-screen keyboard that you can use to type. Deactivating it will disable your physical keyboard.

Temporarily disabling your keyboard using this method allows you to clean it or prevent accidental input without physically disconnecting the keyboard. When you're ready to use your keyboard again, simply activate the Accessibility Keyboard with the same keyboard shortcut.
