    standard MicroSoft Multimedia keyboard.
    Code:
    xmodmap -e 'keycode 115=Menu'
    xmodmap -e 'keycode 174=XF86AudioLowerVolume'
    xmodmap -e 'keycode 176=XF86AudioRaiseVolume'
    xmodmap -e 'keycode 160=XF86AudioMute'
    xmodmap -e 'keycode 162=XF86AudioPlay'
    xmodmap -e 'keycode 162=XF86AudioPause'
    xmodmap -e 'keycode 237=XF86AudioMedia'
    copy this code and save in a file '~/.kde/env/win-key.sh'
    this is for MicroSoft Standard M keyboard.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
