Re: The Dell computer doesn't have a right-windows key.

On just about every desktop keyboard I’ve had since starting the Windows experience with 98, the applications key is just to the right of the right windows key. So, why have two “synonymous” keys on the keyboard that are located right next to each other that perform exactly the same function? I know laptops often dispense with “extra” keys, but I feel like someone led you astray on this.

The various laptops I have experienced, Lenovo, Asus, Toshiba have all had the application key.  I was taught in the long long ago that the application key is synonymous with right-windows-key, even though they have different functions.

I can recall ever seeing a laptop keyboard with 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.
