Remap the Panel button of Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 [Windows Mobile]

Do you want to use the Panel button of the Xperia X1 for something other than launching the panel interface? There is a way to do it, but certainly not the most user-friendly way. It involves registry editing and messing up the registry can have undesirable effects, which may involve committing hard-reset.

Here are the steps to do it:

  1. Get a registry editor for windows mobile. If you use Resco Explorer, you can use the free registry editor that comes with it. PHM Registry Editor works fine too
  2. Go to HKLMSoftwareSonyEricssonPanelManagerApplicationName. Here application name is the name of the application
  3. Make sure you point directly to the actual EXE and not the shortcut file (lnk)
  4. Make sure the path is in the following format. “..” should be there as prefix in every case.

“..Windowspword.exe”
