    Personally I would probably have to say the Windows Key, never use it at all.

    Using pause/break for pausing/playing music as well as ctrl+pause/break for mIRC.

    Using the Windows key for winkey+e, winkey+d, winkey+l, winkey+r etc. all the time.

    Never using the capslock key at all, have had it completely disabled for many years.

    Definitely the 'insert' key. Nothing is more annoying than realizing you accidentally had overtype enabled in Word while rushing to finish a paper that's due in the next couple of minutes.

    But on the other hand, the windows key is absolutely useful! I find myself hitting winkey + D at least once a day (reason disclosed).

    someone likes there hentai.

    I didnt know that winkey+D did anything until now, neat function.

    I do use the windows key alot though in general, for pretty much everything.

    vista/windows7 has that new alt tab menu, i like it.

    Same as Holz, my pause/break is used for controlling foobar2000.
    And about the most useless key, I don't think I've ever used the insert and home key in a few years.
    The windows key, I use atleast 5 times a day.

    I NEVER KNEW WINKEY +D DOES THAT. OH SNAP.

    I'll insert and numlock are utterly useless, at least on a laptop. Hitting insert on accident seriously is aggravating. And numlock... never used it.
