Use the "Windows" Key to Launch the Main Menu in Ubuntu

If you're a Windows user and new to Ubuntu, you may prefer to have the "Windows" key (the key with a Windows logo) launch the main menu. To do this, you need to run the Gnome Configuration Editor:

1. Press ALT+F2 and type: gconf-editor in the dialog box, then press ENTER;

2. On the left pane, go to Apps-->metacity-->global_keybindings;

3. On the right pane, double-click the panel_main_menu, change the value to: Super_L then click "OK".

That's it. Now everytime you press the "Windows" key, the main menu will pop up.
