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).
