Microsoft has launched new keyboards which contain two new keys. The new keys are: Office 365 key Emoji key These dedicated keys allows users to access Microsoft Office or the Windows 10 emoji picker with a single press. The keys are available in a new Bluetooth Keyboard and a new Ergonomic Keyboard – priced at $49.99 and $59.99 respectively. The Verge stated that the keyboards were launched at a Microsoft Surface event held last week, but the company did not place much focus on them. It added that the Office key will replace the right-hand Windows key, and can also be used with various letters to directly open apps in Office.
For example, Office key + W opens Word and Office key + X open Excel, instead of the Office suite. The emoji key will open the emoji picker in Windows 10, and cannot be linked to a specific emoji.
