One way to achieve this is to use the Keyboard Manager, find the script called StartMenu, and assign a braille key to it.

Subject: How do you activate the Windows key to search for something with JAWS on a Focus keyboard?
I’m currently running the latest version of both Windows 10 and JAWS 2019, and I’d really like to know how in the world you do this on a Focus Perkins braille keyboard. All I want to do is to do a search in Windows for something, such as adding a Bluetooth connection. On a regular QWERTY keyboard, all I do is just press and release the Windows key, and I’m in the search field. On the Focus, however, when I enter the Windows key command, it waits for me to issue another keystroke to do something. The ALT keys are the same way. All I want to do is hit these keys and have them by themselves do something, rather than be key modifiers. How do I do this? Help!
Thanks in advance for any info on this.
