    I use a Logitech Keyboard.
    On the keyboard there is a key called SysRq. (I think it stands for system requerements).
    What is the use of this key and what can i use it for?

    It's the print screen key. Hit the key, open up paint, then press ctrl + v. You should have your screen the way it was when you hit the key.
    I dunno of any other use for it.

    Edit: I found an update.
    SysRq or SysReq (short for System Request) is a key on keyboards for PCs that has no standard use......

    So its System Request. I thought it was system requirement.

    Why should there be a key with no use?


    @Anand R F- Thanks for the info.

    its just a useless key taking up abundant real estate space on your keyboard.
    if you ever get frustrated, you can vent your anger with your twitchy finger. i don't have such a key on my keyboard by the way. i just use the pause/break key if i really get pissed.. ;)
