    I recently purchased a keyboard that does not include the (very convenient) Windows key. I wondered if there is a key combination that will bring up the menu that would normally pop up when you hit the start button. thank you

    I think you can press ctrl + esc and the start menu should pop up

    A function key is in place of the windows key. It's a "mini" keyboard I purchased to reclaim some of my computer desk real estate. I never use the key pad anyway, and it makes more space for my wacom tablet. The ctrl+esc worked. Thank youl
