Looking to disable the Alt-Shift-L keyboard shortcut on Lenovos and such? Here ya go…

Type the following command from an admin command prompt:

reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SynTP\Parameters\Debug /v DumpKernel /d 00000000 /t REG_DWORD /f

I’ve been having this problem with Visual Studio. Alt-Shift-L is a common shortcut for finding the location of a file in your solution. However, on a Lenovo laptop, pressing that key combo also stores debug log info for the touchpad driver. Pretty annoying, totally useless, and no UI element to turn it off.

A note: Don’t call Lenovo support. My gosh, they transferred me 3 times, each time to the wrong department. Thank heavens for the Internet.
