Windows 7: Windows logo key

Windows logo key

Hi!

My laptop is an old IBM Thinkpad T43 and there is no windos key logo in the keyboard.

There is any way in Windows 7 to set up other key to do the windows logo key function?

Sorry for my bad english

I think that is the Fn + F8 (usually) combination, right? That might be there even if he doesn't have the Windows key.
jluisc79, let us know
Anyway, I never understood why you have that key while you can just click Start?

You could remap (create scan code) for an unused key to emulate.

the windows key can be used in combination with other keys to do stuff.

eg winkey+r = run

i'm not sure if the op meant to combine keys, or just to see the start menu.

Exactly... i would like to use the shortcuts made through windows key logo:

- Windows + L to Lock Computer
- Windows + P to switch projection modes (clone, extend, single, multiple monitors, etc.)
- Windows + Tab

Thanks

adjust screen brightness up (F7 for down), at least on my laptop. but Ctrl+Esc (or click start ) then typing displayswitch.exe works when connected to a projector (ie, external output). But there are third-party programs available to re-map for instance the left Ctrl Key as the Win Key (Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator) don't mess about too much tho, u don't wanna screw everything up.
