The controls menu, where you can edit the game's control mappings.

Portal has a simple and flexible control scheme which is mostly-consistent across the various platforms it's on. However, you can't access more advanced engine functionality (such as the console) from anything other than the PC version of the game. On the left is an image of the PC control mapping options.
