It's so simple it's not obvious until you use it. Just press the Windows key and start typing what you want. For example Windows,m,o,u,Enter brings up the mouse control panel. Just watch the Start menu change while you type.

If you don't have a Windows key on your keyboard, you'll have to click the Start orb and type.

<CTRL>+<ESC> also brings up the Start Menu. Very useful if your keyboard doesn't have a windows key, or it is damaged.
