I Don't Want to Eject You

I Don't Want to Eject You

The kids in my school's computer lab are getting smart and devious. How do I disable the keyboard Eject key?


Believe it or not, you can't disable the Eject key - you can, however, gouge it out with a fork (the fate of many a Help key). Henceforth, good old Command-E will eject your discs, but to open the disc tray when there's no disc in it, you'll have to launch Terminal(/Applications/Utilities) and type drutil tray eject and press Return to open the tray.

People still have trays on their CD drives. Savages.



They make great cup holders.
