The problem

Many keyboards today include the Windows key between [Ctrl]
and [Alt] keys, but there’s never an explanation about what the key is used

The cause

Around the time Microsoft shipped Windows 95, it also

the Windows key function. Now the Windows key is a common, if little known or
used, function on most modern keyboards. The Windows allows users to quickly do
things without having to reach for the mouse.
