Windows 8 Shortcuts
In March, Kurt Walter did a great piece on Windows 8 and the new shortcut keys for the
Windows Team Blog. Windows 8 is a great touch experience, but now that I have been using it on my desktop for a few months, I have come to see that it is also a fast and fluid keyboard and mouse experience once you know a few shortcuts. Most of the current Windows 7 keyboard shortcuts that you use every day still work. Windows logo key+L still locks, Windows logo key+E still brings up the Explorer, and Windows logo key+R still launches the run command.
