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:

By the way here's a cool vid of a cool song *****star. If it doesn't work sue YouTube.

Hey Nick you'll thank me for it!!

Make sure you check out neardood on instructables too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CTRL+ W is a great thing :D
...unless you don't have a windows key. ...which is the whole point of this instructable.
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 them...it'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 prank....lol...you 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 :)

What about a wireless mouse?
Got one of dose. Takes a while to install drivers on first use though:)
wireless mice are fun...and keyboards too...
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
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.
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??
Besides, I bet you didn't no what control escape did before you read this??? hey say no more say no more
I did, I feel smart now :D lol But this could be quite a handy 'ible IMO
hes actually gramatically correct...considering hes talking about multiple people....
Technically its actually mouses, mice only applies for the small furry rodent. Don't you just love smart asses lol
gooes geese moose meese?
You're the one that brought up Grammatical correctness :P
So who defines what grammar usage is correct? Webster?
thats one think i can't stand...someone who arbitralriy (no clue how to spell that but o well) says, nope wrong...
One thing or think? <br/>thing = unnamed and/or undescribed/previously-described noun.<br/>think = verb involving thought processes.<br/><br/>here you go:<br/>arbitrarily<br/>ar (as in, a pirate, arrrr! Nevermind....)<br/>bit<br/>rar<br/>ily<br/><br/>And who decided that Americans will spell meter, the British: metre?<br/>Specter/spectre<br/>etc. and so on ad nauseum<br/>
Thing :P....
OK. Good, ambiguosity is undesired when unwarranted.... ;D
my heard hurts almost as much now as when i talk to kelysmh...owie..
kelsymh <sup>i dun remember what it is my heard hurts so much</sup><br/>
Who? I'l just look him up, nevermind....
he is a major mad scientist....lol

Yeah, I wasn't paying attention.
that was my other thought.....im not sure...u have an idea?
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.
