Block Ctrl+S while running Python script at Windows console?


I'm running some Python 3.6 scripts at the Windows 10/Windows Server 2016 console. In my every day workflow, I seem to be accidentally sending Ctrl+S keystrokes to some of console sessions, pausing my running scripts until I send another corresponding Ctrl+S to un-pause the affected scripts. My challenge is I don't know when I'm sending these keystrokes other than seeing scripts that seem to have stopped, clicking on their console window, and typing Ctrl+S to unblock them.

Wondering if there's a way to have my Python scripts ignore these Ctrl+S signals or if this behavior is outside of my Python script's control. If there's a way to disable this behavior under Windows 10/Windows Server 2016, I'm open to that as well.

Thank you,
Malcolm
