    Navigate Win8 quickly with keyboard shortcuts




    BEST PRACTICES

    Navigate Win8 quickly with keyboard shortcuts

    By Michael Lasky

    By now, it should be clear that Windows 8's Mondrian-like tiled interface (formerly known as Metro) is optimized for touch-screen devices and not so friendly for mousing around.
    When navigating Win8 on a PC with a standard screen, mousing feels awkward and slow; however, learning a few keyboard shortcuts can greatly improve your productivity.

    The full text of this column is posted at WindowsSecrets.com/best-practices/navigate-win8-quickly-with-keyboard-shortcuts/ (paid content, opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    The easiest way to shut down? Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete. I can't believe they missed this one. It's works with every version of Windows too.

    Lock, Switch User, Log Out and Task Manager are the only options listed with Ctrl+Alt+Del on my Win 8 Pro.
