Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

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:

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