I cannot reproduce this.  I tried Emacs 25.0.95 on 2 Windows 7
systems, and the latest emacs-25 branch on XP, and in all 3 cases the
Windows key still works as it always did.

So some other factor must be at work here.

For starters, does this happen to you in "emacs -Q"?

It is, which is why no one did any such changes.  In fact the Windows
keyboard support was not touched since April.
