The new line of keyboards from Microsoft has acquired two innovative buttons. The first Office key allows you to quickly open applications for work. The second key with a smiley face gives quick access to the list of emojis, reports The Verge.
“Office” applications are launched when you press the Office key in combination with the first letter of its name. For example, Word will be opened by simultaneously pressing Office + W, to start Exel the letter changes, respectively, to E. This button replaced the Win key. The key with the emoticon on it will display a list of emojis built into Windows 10.
The first keyboards to receive the new buttons were the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard and Bluetooth Keyboard. The first is connected to the computer via the USB port, and the second via Bluetooth. In US stores, they will appear on October 15. The device will cost $ 59.99 and $ 49.99, respectively.
Two new buttons are the first changes to the Microsoft keyboard since 1994. Almost all keyboards have 104-105 buttons. The American IT giant does not issue a keyboard certificate for working with Windows if it does not have Win keys and menu buttons.
Earlier, Microsoft announced the November update of Windows 10. Now the operating system is undergoing the latest tests.
