Hi Arrus,

What you've asked can be easily done through 'Keyboard Shortcuts' or some
similar utility (I don't remember the exact name; I use XFCE) which is present
in GNOME. It has a launcher which is usually in Settings or similar sub-menu.

However, for some reason, the use of the 'Win' key has to be along with any
other keys, but not alone, i.e. the 'Win' key alone cannot be used as a
shortcut, but it can be used if you use along with another key, for eg: 'Win'
key + 'M' key, for Menu.
