If it’s possible it would be awesome to have the Windows key available as a modifier for keyboard shortcuts. It would open up a lot more shortcuts :)

Can't really happen,. The Windows Key overrides any running software and is the key that Microsoft uses to let Windows know when the user wants to issue a system command outside of running software. Sounds like a great idea but Windows won't allow it. My boring day job is being a Microsoft Certified software developer, if there was a way I would have voted this suggestion up! yes
