  1. Windows key

    The Windows logo key—also known as the Windows key, the start key or the flag key —is a keyboard key which was originally introduced on the Microsoft Natural keyboard before the release of Windows 95. This key became a standard key on PC keyboards. On keyboards lacking a Windows key, Ctrl+Esc can be used instead in Windows, though some functionality is lacking. When using Windows, tapping this key without pressing any other keys toggles the Start menu or Start screen. Historically, the addition of two Windows keys and a menu key marked the change from the 101/102-key to 104/105-key layout for PC keyboards: compared to the former layout, a Windows key was placed between the left Ctrl and the left Alt; another Windows key and—immediately to its right—a menu key were placed between the AltGr and the right control key. In laptop and other compact keyboards it is common to have just one Windows key. Also, on Microsoft's Entertainment Desktop sets, the Windows key is in the middle of the keyboard, below all other keys. Left Windows key has keycode 115 and the right Windows key has keycode 116.
