in thread The most useless key on my keyboard is:

The "windows key" just sends the code for control-escape. So, whether it's actually on your keyboard or not, you arguably could still map it to something useful...

    Are you sure? Ctrl-Esc-R does nothing for me, but win-r opens the run menu.

      Evidently not. If control-escape is all you hit, then it functions exactly like just hitting the windows key. As a "modifier", I'm not sure what's going on. I'd originally pulled that knowledge from a years ago memory when the key first appeared...
