Windows Button





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:

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:

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:

    Why wouldn't you have a mouse!?

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

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

    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


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

    yes its actually quite the funny need a usb and a ps/2

    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

    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!

    good idea...

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

    Tell us if it works :)

    mhm...usually a good whack over the head will make them forget the past week possibly month :)
