If you thought that your “windows” key would be worthless in Ubuntu, rethink!!!
You can map your “windows” key to “start” in Ubuntu by following these simple steps:
1. Go to the System \ Preferences \ Keyboard Shortcuts
2. Select “Show the panel menu”
3. Press the “windows” key when “New accelerator…” appears.
4. Close the window and DONE!!!
This is a very easy and useful thing to do with Ubuntu…
