The Windows key can be assigned from within applications. I use it in Kmail to 
give me a quick way of changing the email header display so I can cut/paste 
it when reporting spam - Win + s (standard) and Win + a (all). It is done in 
Configure Shortcuts. I have not tried any other application as yet, but Kmail 
can't be the only one.
