Windows 8 Help

Thanks to: *the* Mark Minasi,

shortcut keys

  • Start Screen: to get there, press the key on your keyboard with the "Windows" flag. I'll type that as "[w]" from now on.
  • Desktop: [w]+d
  • Charms: [w]+c
  • Settings, the Metro-ish Control Panel: [w]+I
  • Lock Orientation so it doesn't jump between portrait and landscape with [w]+O
  • Explorer is a pain to get more than one window open at a time but [w]+E always brings up a new Explorer window
  • Many administrative tools can be accessed more quickly with [w]+x
  • The new Metro modern apps have a wonky menu structure so to see every option all at once, [w]+z
