Definition of meta key in English:
Computing A function key on a keyboard that is activated by simultaneously holding down a control key.
- It goes against the grain to leave anyone out simply because they can't read text on a video display or press both the meta key and F1 simultaneously.
- If the above meta keys do not work for some reason you can use the escape key instead by typing it as a separate keystroke.
- The keyboard commands are formed by holding down the control and/or meta keys while typing a keystroke that identified the command.
