    Please realise support of win-key for hotkeys. I used before password manager and it supported winkey. Win+A - very cose to use for autologin. Just two fingers!
    For me hard to use three keys in one time like CTRL+ALT+A. But CTRL+A or ALT+A etc - busy by system commands.
    I will very grateful for this option.

    KeePass doesn't allow the Win key as modifier, because according to Microsoft ( the Win key modifier is reserved for the operating system.

    But other managers support it. Just provide to user decision want he use "reserved" (win+a - not doing anything) hotkey. It's more comfortable than three keys. Did you think about non-usual people?

    Hi Dominik

    The msdn note that the WIN-Key is reserved for OS Events does not forbid to use it by law - it's just a note. There are many other applications which allow to assign the WIN-Key (or a combination).

    It would be VERY useful if KeyPass allows it, too.

    And it does not make much sense to forbid to assign CTRL-WIN-K just beacause there is a note somewhere...

    Thanks a lot,
    kind regards,
