note the ↖ Home and ↘ End keys. The ↖ Home is used to go to command mode.

the ↘ End is used as a leader key for xah's personal commands. (about 80 of them)

Also note the F13F17 keys. They are used as single key, mostly for controlling windows and tabs system-wide.

the “Apps” on the left space bar position means the ▤ Menu key. It is used as lead key for key sequences. Key sequence is used for non-fast-repeat commands, which is about all of emacs thousand commands, minus about 30 fast-repeat commands. 〔➤see Keybinding Design, Fast-Repeat Commands
