Open the Start menu with the Windows button

Problem

Under Linux, you can access the Start menu with ALT+F1. How to assign the Windows button to this operation?

Solution

Open System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts. Under Desktop, find the entry “Show the panel’s main menu“. Click on the shortcut cell and press the desired keyboard combination.

Actually, I assigned the Menu button to this task which is next to my right Windows button on my US keyboard.
