Steps to reproduce

Tested in 41.16299.248.0

Hit the Windows logo key on your keyboard and check the KeyboardEvent.key property. According to these standards:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/KeyboardEvent/key/Key_Values or
https://www.w3.org/TR/uievents-key/#keys-navigation

it should return ‘Meta’ but instead returns 'Win’. This was also mentioned in the comments of this bug https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/issues/8860571/ but I don’t know if it was addressed
