The Windows + R will show you the "RUN" box where you can type commands to either pull up a program or go online. The Windows key is the one in the middle of CTRL and ALT on the lower left side. The R key is the one that is located between the "E" and
"T" key. Hope that helps.
Warning! Some scammers will call and say you have a virus and that they will 'help' you 'fix' it (they will upload a virus to your computer). They will ask you to push the Windows Key and R at the same time. Don't run whatever they tell you.
The person called me and asked that I press the Windows + R key, to verify details that was sent to Windows support. I told him Windows technical support does not make calls to individuals unless a case number is opened. He said my computer is sending
Microsoft Windows technical support messages.....so I hung up...I wonder how many people have fallen for this nonsense??
I also got the call from an Indian sounding person who asked me to press the windows key + R and it would let him clear the Trojan and junk file virus that had invaded my computer. I told him I was not comfortable doing that and that I was calling Microsoft
to verify this phone call. Microsoft said it was scammers and Microsoft never calls someone unless that someone has an appt. (one has called them first with a problem.) The call originated from Los Angeles according to my caller ID. After I hung up from
the first caller, I got another call from an Indian speaking person. Why can't the law locate these people and stop them from calling people??? They have a phone number and I hear so many people have received these calls.
I just received a call, caller ID from San Antonio, Texas, requesting I press the Ctrl and r keys. Said they had received reports I had malicious software on my computer. Said I would see a box on the next screen and they would tell me what to do. I refused.
