    Thanks for the shortcuts A Guy. It can be tricky trying to get to the settings to shutdown the computer.

    Desktop shortcuts


    These are the desktop shortcuts I am currently using. There are a lot more, but some are not really common. Many of the 'old' ones also work - e.g. Win+right arrow or Win+R.

    Desktop --- Win+D
    Metro --- CTL+ESC
    Charms --- Win+C
    Explorer --- Win+E
    Search --- Win+F
    Settings --- Win+I
    App Bar --- Win+Z
    Closing Apps --- Windows + CTRL + TAB

    Maybe you have some useful ones to add.

    Bill, that is a great list - thanks. Beats my modest little list. But now I have to boil it down to the ones I would use.

    Win+P (screen selection mode) is the most combination key I have to hit everyday. Need to extend the screen to LCD TV on the other corner of the room for movies or when my kid begs me for some cartoon clips.
