    The picture on the key itself looks exactly like the Start Button, hence the closest thing that this key looks like it should refer to is the Start Button, since the Start Button has that same logo. It's a Windows key, and the Start Button is the initial location for you to start opening "windows" (aka: programs) in your computer.
