There's translucent keys if you scroll down. I'm not sure what you want. Does it have to have a windows symbol? Or can it just be a backlit key?

Yes, that one is beautyful but the win key on the quickfire tk is only 1x1 not 1x1.25 :(

Thanks anyways

In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Yes.

You wanted R1 (bottom of the keyboard) 1x transparent keycap - the arrow keys would match those requirements.
