XPS M1530 Home Key

  • Pardon me - but I can't find this anywhere....

     

    What is the "HOME" key for on the top left of the XPS M1530 keyboard?

     

    The key by itself in the top black area of the computer?

  • that is the media direct key. launches dell's media center program

    To expand on the previous answer, Dell Media Direct is essentially Dells own version of "Windows Media Center". If your computer is turned off and you press the Home button, it will boot you into a specialised boot for Dell Media Direct, allowing you to watch DVDs, listen to music etc. without booting up windows.
