Key combination in barcode?

Hello,
I have an application on PC, where is no keyboard and mouse, and this app works on full screen. I need to create a barcode, which will allow me to, for example show Windows menu, open windows task manager or open "Run" command. So I need to encode into barcode some of these key combinations:

ctrl+esc
ctrl+alt+del
alt+F4
"Windows Flag button"

Is it possible?

Operating System: Windows XP SP3

Application: Other

In this reply, I will refer to Ctrl, Esc, Alt, Del, the Windows Button, and the F-keys as 'function keys.'

The ability to perform key combinations is dependent on the abilities of the scanner being used.

When using the IDAutomation SC5-USB Scanner, key combinations can be made but are limited to function key + letter only and although certain function keys may be encoded, the result is interpreted as a series of button presses, not as function key combination. Another limiting factor is that only function keys found in the ASCII Table may be encoded.

For the capabilities of that scanner, please review your manual or contact Motorola Solutions Customer Service & Tech Support at 800-653-5350.
