How do you press the Windows key remotely using a Mac?

I am logging into a Windows 10 POS and I am using a Mac. How do I press the Windows key? Or how can I get to the Documents Folder and/or Control Panel on the Windows POS?

    Hello @swaters115,

    Thank you for your message. ?

    You might use the mapping of your Mac keyboard to use equivalent entries when connecting to a Windows PC.

    You will find all the information you need in this article here: Use your Apple Keyboard in Windows with Boot Camp

    I hope this could help. ?

    I tried using the command key from macOS but it still doesn't trigger the windows button for a Windows OS teamviewer session

    I found the solution, you have to activate 'Actions' => 'Send System Key Combinations' for the command button to trigger the windows function

  • You have to go to the settings and select the key that will replace the windows button.
