Default What is the most useless key on a keyboard?

In a neverending quest to post threads that HAVEN'T been talked about here I give you this gem.

I don't think in all my years of Typing I have EVER used the "Scroll Lock" key or "Pause Break" key... I don't even know what they do.

Anyway, what key do you find the most useless.

PS: THe most usefull is Cntrl+Alt+Dlt

windows key has so many uses if you know what they are:

Windows + D: minimize or restore all windows

Windows + M: minimize all windows.

Windows + E: open windows explorer

Windows + F: search for files

Windows + Ctrl + F: search for computer

Windows + F1: help and support center

Windows + R: run dialog box

Windows + break: display system properties dialog box

Windows + shift + M: undo minimize all windows

Windows + L: lock workstation

Windows + U: utility manager

still think it's useless?
