Make right windows key open the Windows 8 start menu when at the desktop

This policy allows you to control if the right windows key should open the Windows 8 start menu when at the desktop.

Note : This option will not work when the foreground application is elevated and the right windows key will be detected as a left windows key press. This is due to UAC limitations.

If you do not configure this policy setting then it defaults to enabled and the Windows 8 start menu will appear when you press the right windows key on the keyboard (if any) when in a desktop application.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista
