    re-enable windows key


    Hello,

    I could not find a solution for how re-enable the windows key on my keyboard. This is the second time it just stopped working. I cannot figure out how I did it before.

    What keyboard do you have?
    Some have a switch to disable the Windows key so that it doesn't get accidentally pressed during games, etc.

    I use the MS Sidewinder X6 keyboard. I will look to see if there is an ability to disable/enable the key.
