The keyboard shortcuts in the Tab S3 refer to the meta key. You are able to hold the meta key and press enter to simulate the home button that you would normally press on the tablet when the keyboard is attached. 

 

I have rang Samsung I have chatted with Samsung and nobody even the people that wrote the software and the system and the hardware do not know what the meta key is!!

 

Every other system in the world has a command key a Windows key control key an old key function key however in their wisdom Samsung gov decide to call it a meta key and this key doesn't seem to exist on the physical keyboard

 

Does anyone know what the meta key is?

I was also confused by this when I first found the shortcut menu.  I hope you have found it by now, but for everyone else, it is the "search" key that looks like a magnifying glass next to the Ctrl key.  This key is also referred to as the super key; but that's not much better.  Happy computing!

Not really, the keybindings are completely different.
