Microsoft is introducing their new keyboards which feature two additional keys intended for Microsoft Office and emoji.
Earlier this year, the company considered adding Office key to their keyboards and now, the tech giant has finally released its latest Ergonomic Keyboard and slim Bluetooth Keyboard with inclusion of the said buttons.
The Office key took the place of right hand Windows key. Upon clicking, it will automatically launch Office for Windows 10. The key can also be used as shortcut for opening Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Publisher, and other Office Tools. For instance, you may enter the Office key + W to launch Word and Office key + X to open Excel.
Microsoft’s latest keyboard also comes with the newest emoji key which is placed right beside the Office key. Clicking on this key will make a pop-up menu appear with an emoji picker in Windows 10, just like with the social networking sites. However, this will not allow you to create shortcuts or assign it to a particular emoji.
Both Office and emoji keys are shortcuts that will save help save time of users, the same as how the Start Menu Windows key works.
