The KeyboardEvent.metaKey read-only property returning a Boolean that indicates if the Meta key was pressed (true) or not (false) when the event occurred. Some operating systems may intercept the key so it is never detected.

Note: On Macintosh keyboards, this is the ⌘ Command key. On Windows keyboards, this is the Windows key (⊞ Windows).

At least as of Firefox 48, the ⊞ Windows key is not considered the "Meta" key. KeyboardEvent.metaKey is false when the ⊞ Windows is pressed.

Return value

A Boolean

Example

function ismetaKey(e) {
  alert("metaKey = " + e.metaKey);
