Windows key

Some keyboards designed specifically to work with Windows® 95 and highier contain two extra types of keys -Application keys and Windows® Logo keys-that provide fast keyboard alternatives to many operations you'd usually perform with a mouse. For example, you can use the Windows® Logo keys to open the Start menu, instead of clicking the Start button at the lower-left corner of the desktop.
