Microsoft is reportedly working on a new Windows key that may find a dedicated position on your keyboards very soon.
WalkingCat recently came across an internal survey page from Microsoft. Apparently, the big M is currently testing a new Office key on keyboards.
The Office key took the place of the existing Menu key. Many people even don’t have any idea about the Menu key located at the right side of the space bar.

It seems that Microsoft is really serious about the Office key idea because the company has already created various shortcuts.
Some of them are Office key + T, O, P, W, X, D, N, Y, and L. Apparently users will use them to switch between Microsoft Teams, Outlook, Powerpoint and Excel and others.
Users can share documents with their team members with the help of Office key + S. You can see the concept image of how the Office key could be developed.
No confirmation from Microsoft
So, it seems that Microsoft is gathering feedback from users by asking them if they want a dedicated Office key on their laptops.
Additionally, Microsoft wants to know if users want additional dedicated keys as well. User feedback may decide the future of this idea.
A dedicated Office key seems to be an interesting feature for Windows users to have. However, there is no official confirmation from Microsoft at the moment.
Today, Office is considered to be one of the most popular software solutions by Microsoft. Probably that is the reason why Microsoft decided to offer a dedicated key with some useful shortcuts.
Microsoft aims to improve the efficiency of its Office Suite. Right now, the idea is in the early development stages. Laptop and keyboard manufacturers will have to think about ways to implement it if Microsoft decides to bring this idea to life.
