command keyThe Command key (also known as the "Apple" key) is probably the most important key on the Apple keyboard as it's leveraged for numerous keyboard shortcuts.  It is referred to as a "modifier" key.  There are two Command keys on the Apple keyboard to accomodate both left and right handed users.  You'll find one on each side of the spacebar.

Most menu options such as "Quit", "Close", and "Save" have an associated keyboard shortcut tied to using the Command key.  For example, hold down Command and then press the "S" key to save.
