    Ctrl + Esc simulates the Windows key when there is no Windows key.

    Richard,

    Control + Exc doesn't duplicate all of the functions the Window key
    function, but it does open the start menu.

    'Windows key' + 'e', opens an Explorer window. Is there an alternate key
    combination for opening an Explorer window?

    Thanks.

    -Dennis

    Not that I know of. Although no doubt someone will be along with a method
    soon.
