The Command key is a key that gets its design from Susan Kare. We can find this key on all Apple (Macintosh) keyboards thus. You also know this key as the Beanie key, Cloverleaf key, cmd key, Apple Open key, or Command. It is hence similar to the Control key (in functioning) on Windows Keyboard. Thus, we will discuss the Command Key on Windows Keyboard.


Users who are not familiar with Macintosh computers, but are familiar with IBM compatible computers, can compare this key to the Microsoft Windows key. If you have a Windows keyboard on an Apple computer, the Windows key becomes the Command key thus. It is a matter of note that the command key is specifically not present on a windows keyboard.

There are thus various key combinations that users can use to perform specialized functions like copying, pasting, cutting, and many more. Hence, we press specific keyboard buttons in combination with the command button to perform the desired tasks.

In the subsequent sections, we will thus discuss various keyboard shortcuts using the command key.
