As the title specifies, my windows key does not open my start menu at the moment. windows+tab does the cascading tabbing of applications, windows+e opens explorer, windows+t loops through my task bar, etc. The only thing the windows key doesn't do at the moment is opening the start menu.
Rebooting would most likely fix this, I'd be surprised if it didn't. However, if rebooting right now was not an option (and it might not be one if I had a bunch of calculations running, but this is hypothetical, but I'd like to be prepared in case this happens), which settings should I check to fix this? I did try disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard.
