    I disabled my Windows key when using Windows 7 but now I am on Windows 10 I wish to re-enable it. Unfortunately I can't seem to find any way of doing this. Can anybody help with this problem

    Somewhere in the system there is a enable/disable map for keys. I wanted to disable Caps Lock and found the method via Google I bet you'd find the same for the Windows key with a search.

    Yep..... Google is your friend.
    To enable the Windows key, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedt32, and then click OK.
    2. On the Windows menu, click HKEY_LOCAL_ MACHINE on Local Machine.
    3. Double-click the System\CurrentControlSet\Control folder, and then click the Keyboard Layout folder.
    4. Right-click the Scancode Map registry entry, and then click Delete. Click Yes.
    5. Close Registry Editor and restart the computer.

    Google is not your friend with this particular issue. The info is for XP. I have the same problem as OP, definitely 10-related.
