Windows machines don't have a command key, but Macs do have a CTRL (Control) key. If you're on a Mac, it is Command + ]. (Are you using the square brackets?)
Also, if you're not using a code editor (eg: Atom, Sublime Text, etc...) that command doesn't work on plain text editors (eg. Notepad).

I hope one of us was able to solve your problem.

Highlight the section you want to indent and then press Tab

Must be my Scandinavian type of keyboard, that opens the recent tab for me. Well, I'll have to leave it for now, don't want to be stuck because of that when everything else rolls nicely.

"Nicola Carrucciu on Oct 10 On windows select test and press Tab to indent code in threehouse workspaces."

Doing this the whole selected text disappears.

As mentioned in the question title, it's Ctrl + ] (for workspaces and certain editors). Perhaps Nicola Carrucciu might mention which windows editor that tab technique works on.

Hey, to explain it as easy as possible without any confusing bs, since you are using a windows keyboard the only thing you have to do is highlight the text you want to indent then you hit the tab button on the keyboard.
