On the desktop, if you click the mouse, it shows the menu, right....? And I found out that the key on the RIGHT HAND SIDE, next to the CTRL key, also shows it - I would like to change this to the WINDOZE key, on the LEFT. How do I do that?

 

Thanks.

I do not know but I am quite certain I saw a key assignment feature around somewhere in a Bodhi or Moksha configuration screen.  -_-

Hmm, I'm afraid you can't. Moksha uses the WIN key as a modifier key, like ALT and CTRL are modifier keys.

 

So WIN + somekey might have a keybinding to the main menu if you add that setting, but WIN alone is not possible.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

I have Win + Spacebar mapped to the Launch Everything tool. That works great for me.

OK...... - how do I do THAT then?

Not working. When it says "Press the key sequence", when I press the Win key + Left Shift, nothing happens!

Tough.

As you can see in the left pane with the existing bindings the SHIFT key is a modifier too. Pick a real character to make it work

@newhere - For example, you could use Win+Z and possibly be able to get your menu with only one finger (depending on the details of your keyboard layout).


Nothing is as simple as it seems at first, or as hopeless as it seems in the middle, or as finished as it seems in the end.
