Disabling Windows Lock Screen Shortcut

I use a VirtualBox Hackintosh on my Windows laptop. And I use "Select Line" function in TextEdit a lot. The shortcut key for it is command-l, which I mapped to the Windows key. But win-l is the shortcut key for lock screen on Windows.

Locking the screen is rather useless to me, because I never lock my screen. There is no password on my account. And I have enabled auto-login.

But I would like to use the shortcut for "Select Line" often. The trick is to disable the lock screen shortcut on Windows. You can do it by adding a value to Windows registry on Windows 10, 8, and 7. I made it easy with the attached registry file.

To re-enable it again, download the registry file below. Then double-click the registry file in Windows.
