  • Windows computer keyboards will have a new button for the first time in 25 years

    Authoritative insider WalkingCat shared information about Microsoft's plans to add a new mandatory button on the keyboard for Windows-computers. The last time a software giant did something like this was 25 years ago.


    According to the insider, the new button on the keyboards for Windows computers will be responsible for the quick launch of a certain office hub, including office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and so on). In addition, in combination with other keys, it will allow you to perform quick actions like opening a menu to send a document.

    It is expected that the button will be installed on keyboards separately or will replace the right key of Windows. According to WalkingCat, its support is already implemented in the may update of Windows 10.

    The last time the Redmond company added a button 25 years ago, obliging in 1994 the PC manufacturers to equip the keyboard with a dedicated Windows key. Since then, Microsoft has not certified accessories and laptops without this button. The Office key is also likely to become a required attribute.
