    Windows key in Xubuntu

    I was wondering, if there is some way to use the windows key or asign it to do something?

    This is possible , but you haven't stated what do you want to do with windows key (ex. use it as shortcut,...)

    You can make shortcut via Settings Manager/Keyboard/Application shortcuts.

    I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A QUANTAL QUETZAL IS...BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE PRETZEL AND I LIKE PRETZEL

    Well, I meant something more, like.. Switching workspaces. That would be great!

    settings manager >> window manager >> keyboard >> next workspace (assign your key).

    have a look through the other keyboard shortcuts here, in case you want to do something different.

    I use my windows key as compose key, which is a good way of typing accented characters. I had to use xmodmap to get it configured.
