Command keyMacintosh computers have a special command key marked by a four-leaf clover or an apple. The Command key is similar to a PC's Alt key -- you hold it down while pressing another key to execute some operation. Typically, command-key combinations are shorthands for menu choices.

The Command key is sometimes called the Apple key or Open Apple.
