Introduction: Windows Button

How to press the windows button without the windows button!

An insight to the life of a cheap bogan with a cheap keyboard

Step 1:

Picture of

Are some of your keys missing?

Are some broken?

Maybe you have a MIC keyboard without the windows button?

What happens if you don't have a mouse?

Then how on Earth are you ever going to press the start button!??

Step 2:

Picture of

Here's how:

>First you place your left thumb on top of the Control key, do so now.

>Next you carefully place your index finger or if preferred your middle finger on the Escape key (middle finger is most recommended).

>Now you hold down the Control key.

>Then you tap Escape.

>If done correctly the key combination should have sprouted up the start menu!!

Note: DO NOT hold down the combination for longer than 20 100ths of a second (0.2secs or 20 milliseconds) as your screen will erupt in a rather exquisite array of trippy flashes courtesy of the start menu.

WARNING: seizures may result in the above actions

Step 3:

Microsoft knows best

Here's a link if you are still unsure,

and remember, Control (CTRL) + Escape (ESC)

If you have any queries comments or questions please feel free to contact me.

Happy (CTRL + ESC)ing, and don't forget to practice!

Step 4:

...unless you don't have a windows key. ...which is the whole point of this instructable.

Why wouldn't you have a mouse!?

wezdog1 (author)lobo_pal2009-02-02

Dude who uses mice these days, get to the future bro (:P

lobo_pal (author)wezdog12009-02-03

Mouse, singular. If you're using two mice at once, than you're skilled.

The nerdling (author)lobo_pal2011-04-06

my school lappy has 2 mice/mouses whatever it is, and i use both of's easy!!!

here's my lappy's keyboard to prove it

cornflaker (author)lobo_pal2009-03-04

I have done that lol you can plug two into the one computer at a time, but they both control the same cursor.

cornflaker (author)fwjs282009-03-17

2 USB's works too, and it can indeed be quite funny lol I was controlling a friends comp in class while we were playing Halo (teacher was away) and making him shoot team mates and stuff and he just though it was lag till i told him at the end haha

Derin (author)cornflaker2009-07-21

For April Fools,I am going to replace my mom's new mouse at work with her old one that I gutted and glued the scroll wheel in.She probably will think her mouse is broken!

fwjs28 (author)Derin2009-07-21

good idea...

Derin (author)fwjs282009-07-22

She actually saw it's construction,so I depend on the fact that she will forget.

wezdog1 (author)Derin2009-08-10

Tell us if it works :)

Derin (author)wezdog12009-08-10


fwjs28 (author)Derin2009-07-22

What about a wireless mouse?

wezdog1 (author)lobo_pal2009-06-03

Got one of dose. Takes a while to install drivers on first use though:)

fwjs28 (author)wezdog12009-06-04

wireless mice are fun...and keyboards too...

fwjs28 (author)lobo_pal2009-03-04

that would be funny as hell....get a third person, and then be like lol dude, its just me, show them, unplug it and be like lol....then 5 minutes later another person on the wireless should just like randomly twitch the mouse :P

lobo_pal (author)fwjs282009-03-04

lol, yeah like lol, that would be like so funny lol, I never like thought of that lol, I need to try that like lol.

wezdog1 (author)fwjs282009-03-17

what if you blew your USB ports because of your cheap Made in China camera and you have a decent computer with no old tech like ps2 ports??

wezdog1 (author)wezdog12009-03-17

Besides, I bet you didn't no what control escape did before you read this??? hey say no more say no more

cornflaker (author)wezdog12009-03-17

I did, I feel smart now :D lol But this could be quite a handy 'ible IMO

fwjs28 (author)lobo_pal2009-02-04

hes actually gramatically correct...considering hes talking about multiple people....

cornflaker (author)fwjs282009-03-04

Technically its actually mouses, mice only applies for the small furry rodent. Don't you just love smart asses lol

fwjs28 (author)cornflaker2009-03-04

gooes geese moose meese?

cornflaker (author)fwjs282009-03-21

You're the one that brought up Grammatical correctness :P

Unit042 (author)cornflaker2009-07-14

So who defines what grammar usage is correct? Webster?

fwjs28 (author)Unit0422009-07-15

thats one think i can't stand...someone who arbitralriy (no clue how to spell that but o well) says, nope wrong...

Unit042 (author)fwjs282009-07-15

One thing or think?
thing = unnamed and/or undescribed/previously-described noun.
think = verb involving thought processes.

here you go:
ar (as in, a pirate, arrrr! Nevermind....)

And who decided that Americans will spell meter, the British: metre?
etc. and so on ad nauseum

fwjs28 (author)Unit0422009-07-15

Thing :P....

Unit042 (author)fwjs282009-07-15

OK. Good, ambiguosity is undesired when unwarranted.... ;D

fwjs28 (author)Unit0422009-07-15

fwjs28 (author)fwjs282009-07-15

lobo_pal (author)fwjs282008-11-19

Your cheap and/or you enjoy doing things the hard way. If that's the case, I suggest you try electrical wiring and put it in the how not to instructable.
