    I think the reason keytweak reads your home key as two keystrokes is because it actually runs two keystrokes every time you click it. I think that's how it toggles. It reads the same way if I try to map any of the fn toggle keys on my keyboard.

    Therefore, if you were to map both of the keys that keytweak is reading when you do full teach mode as the windows button, you may be able to get it to launch the windows metro screen every time... hmmm, I think I might test this out...

    But one of those buttons is the B button, will that not stuff me up if I ever use a keyboard? I don't usually remap keys, so this is unusual for me

    Also, Keytweak cannot access the 46464 style numbers, if we use Full Teach it reads keystroke 1 being remapped to keystroke 2. So we can't use that program, however it had got us a break

    Sorry, I misunderstood about the b button.
    Still, it sounds like progress. I think I'm all dried up for suggestions, but I'll keep following and let you know if I think of anything. Make sure you let us know if you get it sorted

What's the Point of Start Menu for NON Touch Screen PC?
I'm struggling to see the purpose of the Metro Start Screen unless the computer has a touch screen. Other than the Apps and the few Live tiles - programs I've installed open on the regular desktop when I click on the tile. Am I doing something wrong, or is that the way it should be?
