Windows users should be familiar with the “Windows Key” present on most QWERTY keyboards. This key supposedly brings up the “Start Menu” on Microsoft Windows operating system, but it is useless when in Ubuntu, as it does nothing when pressed. Here’s how to make the “Windows Key” to function similarly in Ubuntu as in Windows operating system.
Firstly, go to the Gnome desktop and click on the “System menu”. Then go to “Preferences” and select “Keyboard Shortcuts”. Then look for “Show Panel Menu” under “Action” column and click the shortcut column. Press the “Windows Key”. Close the dialog and you’re done. Here’s the screenshot of the dialog for your reference.
Extra Added Touch?
For an extra added touch, you can replace the “Windows” logo on the “Windows Key” with the Ubuntu ones. System76 offers free Ubuntu logo stickers to be used on the “Windows Logo” key, and the good news is you can order it for free! (the bad news is, it only available to few selected countries only)
