    Can a hot key be set for the start screen items?

    In Win7, it was easy to set a hot key for anything on the start menu. The key combination was Ctl + Alt + key. On Win8 this works for the items in the taskbar, but I can't find a way to set a key combination for the applications that reside on the Metro screen. Is there a way to do this?

    Not that I know of, but you can always press the windows key and start typing and you will get a diminishing list of apps that match whatever you have typed.

    Thanks. Yes, that seems to be the only option. Too bad we lost that feature, as it could be simply added to the Metro icons, but they didn't.
