Where is the super key?

Hey i've hit a bit of a snag with keyboard shortcuts, i can't find the super key. I have a UK keyboard if that changes anything?

Super key? I've never heard of it. Can you use it in context? Is it part of a sequence, or a combination?

Its just used in a combination. Like instead of Ctrl+F9 or Ctrl+Alt+D (for example) it'll say Super+F6 or something like that.

I thought it might have meant the windows key but that doesnt work.
