RC16 Meta Keyboard Shortcut key?

I’m seeing keyboard shortcuts reference the Meta key. I have no idea what this is. Can someone please enlighten me? Thank you. Screenshot for reference.


This question has appeared multiple times. This is the “Win” key.

Thank you.

Calling it meta is confusing. Some programs/frameworks use meta for alt, others use it for esc.

I know that it’s called meta internally in Qt, but maybe the UI should show WIN or do like on the Mac and show the actual symbol. Something like “⊞ Win”.

I agree Shaun. The reason that this question appears multiple times is because it is confusing. Unfortunately it is all handled internally in Qt and the menu shortcut text is automatically generated. We will try to improve it, but we have more pressing issues to fix currently.

This has been fixed and can be tested in RC17.
