Is it possible to use the Windows key in tmux?

I'd like to bind my commands to use it as the prefix.

Does your windows key cause your terminal emulator to send any (special) data to its tty? A common diagnostic technique is to type stuff at cat -v. When you do this, does anything show up when you type your Windows key by itself (or, when pressing it with another key, anything besides the normal output for that other key)? Unless your terminal emulator sends (special) output for the key, then there is no way tmux can know that you have pressed it. – Chris Johnsen Jun 11 '12 at 4:12
Was looking the same question and found more explanation there:… bu I guess you might have discovered it since then. – AdrieanKhisbe Mar 26 '13 at 22:17
