The default behaviour for Win+1 is to make active the first program pinned to the task bar. Maybe you could try pinning Ztree to the taskbar to get that shortcut working.

"Life at a glance" is part of the Windows 10 equivalent of the start menu, and pressing the Win key by itself is the equivalent of clicking on the start button.

I found that the Windows 10 start menu is very usable once you've cleared all that default junk out of the way. Resizing the giant icons so they're all the same size made it seem a lot less overbearing to me.

I wonder if trying to use this particular shortcut key is going to be tricky. It might be easier to do it as I described above.

This is a good place to ask, but there is a huge amount of help on the web for that sort of thing.
