In tip 0484, I described how to disable the Windows key.
In Windows 2000, the Windows logo key will open the Start menu. The following combinations are supported by default:
Windows logo key+R: Opens the Run dialog box
Windows logo key+F: Opens the Search menu
Windows logo key+U: Starts Utility Manager
Windows logo key+F1: Starts Windows Help
Windows logo key+F3: Opens the Search menu.
NOTE: Enabling the Disable programs on Settings menu Group Policy will remove the following from the Settings menu:
Network and Dialup Connections
This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.
NOTE: All other Windows logo key combinations will continue to work.
