WINKEY + RIGHT ARROW – Snap current window to the right side of screen; unsnap window that is snapped to left side of screen

WINKEY + TOP ARROW – Maximize current window.

WINKEY + BOTTOM ARROW – Minimize current window; restore maximized window.

What is a 'Winkey' key?
I just can't seem to get snap to work?
