    Looks like a legend of some sort, I doubt it's native; perhaps it's via your device manufacturer.

    That WinKey function is created by PowerToys for Windows 10.

    Start menu, PowerToys, Settings, Shortcut guide. Turn it off if you don't want it.

    That overlay looks as if it comes up as Task View!
