Send('{LWIN}')

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

RTFM

Under "Send" or "Send Key List":

{LWIN} Left Windows key {RWIN} Right Windows key

What start screen are you talking about?

Do you mean the login screen?

that would involve

Send("{LWIN}")
Send("L")
Send("L")

Why not Send('{LWIN}LL')? (BTW... those of you that try this it logs you off... just a friendly warning.)
