Prepare to sneer: a dumb question for you

In a key command such as Shift-control-eject, what key is actually being pressed for "eject"?

I think of "eject" as command-e.

The little key in the upper right corner, a little triangle with a dash under it.

No dumb questions here.

The eject key, triangle with a line under, top corner of the main block of keys on an extended keyboard.


EDIT: Damn it beaten by a fraction of a second.

The key that opens and closes the optical drive, in other words.

Exactly. A lot of us have slot loading drives that do not open. So the key only ejects.

On some keyboards, it is F13, I think. Or maybe one of the higher F-keys.
