    Inside a Windows VM, pressing the Windows key on the keyboard brings up the Windows Start menu. This is not the case when a Mac app has the focus (in Coherence mode).
    SUGGESTION: Pressing the Windows key should bring up the Windows Start menu in any case (even if a Mac App has the focus) IF a Windows VM is running in Coherence mode. At least, this should be an OPTION in the Settings of the Windows VM.

    Rethinking this: The Windows key on double-use (Mac/Windows) keyboards like Logitech Craft, in Mac apps, is interpreted as ⌥ Option key. So there should be a special preset key combination for bringing up the Windows Start menu from a Mac app.
