  • I just booted up my 12.04 to find it for older releases, which I guessed from your screenshot. :)

    Anyone know why it isn't set to the super key by default? Jun 17, 2019 at 18:26
  • @extremeaxe5 On Windows I've pressed the super key by accident countless times while in game / watching a film / etc. and I find it one of the most annoying features of Windows. I'm guessing I'm not alone with this. Also, I think the super key is like CTRL or ALT, it's meant to be used in combination with other keys. Imagine binding the menu to CTRL!
