moderated Re: Suggestions for a new wireless keyboard
The only wireless keyboard I have ever had which has a working applicationb key as well as 2 Windows Keys is the Logitech G613 Mechanical gaming keyboard. It also has 6 keys down the left side (to the left of where tab, caps lock, shift and control are and the keyboard can be used either via a Bluetooth connection or a USB dongle. It is also called "Lightspeed" because if you use it with the USB dongle on a PC it bosts a 1 millisecond latency and it is in fact extremely responsive and for a PC I would never use it via Bluetooth. It is, however, nice if you have an iPhone or other smartphone, switching between Bluetooth and USB is done via a mechanical slider switch at the top and it is very convenient if you also want to use it with a smartphone or tablet.
I found that unfortunately the durability/reliability is a bit lacking, I had mine less than a year when Jaws sometimes was doing weird things like skipping key presses and so on and eventually I realized that it was the keyboard because when I connected one of my Das Keyboard mechanical wired keyboards the problem disappeared. The feel of the keyboard is OK although it's not my favourite and I much prefer the Blue switches of the Das Keyboard. At home I use a Logitech K780 which you can pair with up to 3 devices and this one also comes with a USB dongle, but it's not a mechanical keyboard and it does not have an application key or a Windows key on the right.

Subject: Re: Suggestions for a new wireless keyboard
I do not have a preference. The one I have at present, is a standard keyboard. It only has one Windows key. While it has an Applications key, it does not work with my HP Pavillion DV6 laptop, so I always need to use SHIFT+F10, to open the Applications menue. The set of keys between the main keyboard and the number pad, only has 5 keys, With the DELETE key being the size of the INSERT and DELETE keys, very inconvenient, especially if you need to use the insert key.
