Windows 8 - Keyboard Shortcuts

Those of you that know me, will know I'm pretty much obsessed with keyboard shortcuts. So imagine my delight when I came across this new list today whilst reading this review of Windows 8:

Windows logo key + start typing: Search your PC

Ctrl+plus (+) or Ctrl+minus (-): Zoom in or out of many items, like apps pinned to the Start screen or in the Store

Ctrl+scroll wheel: Zoom in or out of many items, like apps pinned to the Start screen or in the Store

Windows logo key + C: Open the charms

Windows logo key + F: Open the Search charm

Windows logo key +H: Open the Share charm

Windows logo key +I: Open the Settings charm

Windows logo key + K: Open the Devices charm

Windows logo key + O: Lock the screen orientation (portrait or landscape)

Windows logo key + Z: Open commands for the app

Windows logo key + PgUp: Move the Start screen and apps to the monitor on the right (apps in the desktop won’t change monitors)

Windows logo key + PgDn: Move the Start screen and apps to the monitor on the left (apps in the desktop won’t change monitors)

Windows logo key + Shift+period (.): Snap an app to the left

Windows logo key + period (.): Snap an app to the right
