Before I try this, I want to make sure just what key I should choose
in the list of 235 keys. You changed your applications key to a
second windows key. I don't want to do that. I want the non
functioning windows key to function properly.
Use a program like Sharp Keys. Below are steps on doing what
you want to do using the applications key as an example.
1. To use this utility you must press enter on the file:
"E:\Downloads\sharpkeys3\SharpKeys.exe." There is no installer
and no entry
placed on All Programs menu or Desktop.
2. If it pops up, hit Alt + letter R when the "Open File
pops up. SharpKeys will then present it's user interface.
3. Tab to the Add button" and press enter.
4. You will be placed in a list box containing some 235 items
your keyboard's individual keys. Down arrow through this list
select the key you want to remap. Since I want to remap my
applications key I will down arrow and select the following key:
5. Tab about 3 times or until you reach the second list box. you
down arrow to select what you would like the new key to be.
Since I want to
change the default Windows applications key to a second Windows
key to the
right of the spacebar, I will select the following key: Special:
6. Tab to Ok and hit enter.
7. Tab to "Write to Registry" and press enter.
8. You will receive a prompt informing you that you will need to
either reboot or log off for the changes to take effect.
Stay safe and take care. Mike.

There are four keys: alt key, (supposedly Windows key) context key
(which does work normally) and control key.
