Do you mean the applications key?
The right windows key does the same thing as the left windows key – that is, open cortana/start/search box.
To get the functions of the applications key (which sometimes can be reached by right-clicking, but not always), try shift-f10.
I know some laptops have the function keys mapped to do other things, so you’ll have to make sure you have regular access to those first. I think this is what the “fn” key is usually for, but maybe see particular instructions on your laptop model.

Subject: [jaws-users] The Dell computer doesn't have a right-windows key.
One of the computers we now have is a Dell, and this laptop does not have a right-windows button. I’ve tried the right-mouse button, hoping to come up with the same options, but they are not the same. For instance, to make a shortcut key to an app on the desktop, I have always right-clicked with the right-windows button, gon into Properties, and the Shortcut Key tab. However, the right-mouse button on this dell does not get me to the properties.
So I guess I’m asking two questions. 1) What is the equivalent of the right-windows button on this Dell, and how can I creat shortcut keys on the desktop without right-clicking. Again, the right-mouse button does not offer the same options.
Thanks very much.
