115 is (should be) the keycode of left window key. 116 and 117 should be right
window and menu key.
You can choose to associate any key you desire with these codes. Be it F23 or
F13. I am no keyboard expert, but you may certainly use F13-F30 (not sure
about the upper limit at all)... there might be other "free keys" that are
not present on PC keyboard and that you could use.
If you run
xmodmap -e "keycode 115=F23"
and then go to shortcut settings and press your left window key, you will see
that KDE recognizes it as F23.
But be warned that next time you restart KDE or just switch to different
keyboard layout, your key mappings will be gone. You'll need to add them to
some startup script.
