My keyboard has IBM's logo on it. My keyboard at work has Dell's logo on 
it. In the cupboard, I have a Mac with Apple's logo on it. Do you have a

They're welcome to try. Without support from the operating system, what

Apple used to have an Apple key. Later they changed it to ⌘ (Command), 
but everyone knows that ⌘ is only available on Apple keyboards.
