Thanks Pete, that's great. I've now got access to the windows keys, either by labelling them with xmodmap or using the quoted number. The only problem now is figuring out which keys to bind to which commands!

There is one problem however, 2 of my computers do not run X and
consequently do not have the xmodmap command. So If I am working on them
in the console or via ssh I have to maintain my old key binding and try
to remember not to press the windows logo key instead.

I will try to figure out how to enable these keys in non X environment an
let you know, perhaps someone already knows how to do this?

Is C-h k <Windows key+another key> returns just <another key>?

If not, you could by hand 'M-x global-set-key <the combination> RET scroll-other-window RET C-x ESC ESC C-a C-k C-g' -- bind the key and start to repeat-previous-command. The cursor goes into the minibuffer, where you put it at the beginning and then kill the whole line. Now an interrupt, and you're ready to yank/paste the valid ELisp expression into .emacs ... it wouldn't look pretty with a number instead of symbols (that's what I am used from X11 or Apple's Aqua), but it would work.



Without vi there is only GNU Emacs
