You know that key on Windows keyboards that has the little flying window picture on it? This was another obvious attempt by Microsoft to look more like a Mac — why they didn’t just eliminate a mouse button and delete the “End-of-Line” key and change “Backspace” to “Delete,” we’ll never know. Nor do we want to.
Anyhow, for us Lefties, that Windows key was a UI disaster. I would be typing along, and all of a sudden some random program would launch itself. That’s right; my finger slipped and I pressed “Window-R.” And then, occasionally, I’d suddenly find myself looking at an empty desktop. “Windows-D.”
Maybe it’s not a lefty thing. Maybe I’m the only one with fingers that bend that way. Whatever. The point is, I pried that stupid key loose several months ago and mounted it on the wall like a hunting trophy. I like it a lot better up there.
And I’m sure glad “Window-F” didn’t ever short-cut to “format hard drive.”
