[Solved] Using the 'Windows Key' to open Mint Menu

Postby Verix on Thu Feb 11, 2010 1:43 pm

I couldn't find any entry in the keyboard shortcuts tool that corresponds to opening the Mint Menu. Is there any way that I can map the Windows Key on my keyboard to open up the Mint Menu? That would be pretty convenient to me.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Ctrl+Winkey opens the menu. It was originally changed from just the Winkey though I forget why. You can change it by right mousing the menu and selecting preferences.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

Yeah, I have mine as just SUPER_L and it works perfectly with the WIndows Key.
