Default Shortcut keys for logitech keyboard?

After getting a usb female/female adaptor asnd finding a usb hostmode apk tyuping on android is actually pretty nice. My problem now is what about shortcut keys? There is no search button or menue key because desktop keyboard. alt tab and windows-key tab do the same thing. Ctrl c/v/x does wha'ts expected, but actual navigation is hard to manage.

I know chrome/browser and gmail have shortcut keys, but since I can't get to the home screen or apps list from keyboard or in the case of IM+ can't use keyboard to navigate between convrosations kinda bums me out.

Yes yes trying to turn tablet into a desktop. Hurr Hurr go get a laptop.

If you hook up a mouse too, you can use the mouse and click on home and back, etc. So its very much like a desktop then. A powered usb hub works for that.

It looks like windows key + esc might work as shortcut for home, but never tried it so maybe:
"If you want to test things out, try pressing the “Windows” key (“Apple” or “Command”) + ESC, and you will be whisked to your Home screen."

They also list these and more:
" ESC = go back
CTRL + ESC = menu
CTRL + ALT + DEL = restart (no questions asked)
ALT + SPACE = search page (say “OK Google” to voice search)
ALT + TAB (ALT + SHIFT + TAB) = switch tasks "

Who knows what else is lurking out there...
