Windows 8 shortcut keys

windows 8 shortcuts I don’t belive in trying to learn too many shortcuts at once. Here are 5 which have made my life easier on Windows 8 desktop:

Alt F4
shuts down open windows but on the desktop it brings up the shutdown/switch user box

Windows key X brings up a list of useful options like Run, Disk Management, Device Manager, Search etc

Windows key C
brings up the Charms sidebar

Windows key R brings up the Run menu

Windows key F brings up the search menu for files in the Metro interface and I really like that GUI
