    Seems like ctrl+tab takes you to the full Apps list if you're already in the Start Menu. Same as win+Q (I was expecting that to be some kind of quit)

    Nice Shawn. Was thinking of reorganizing the list, but without 8 to confirm, wasn't sure I'd get it right. A Guy

    Something I use on my smartsized remote 2560x1600 desktop often enough:
    win + + to zoom in
    win + - to zoom out

    win + tab is the equivalent of manually pressing the top left corner metro toggle, so you can flip between your metro app and desktop etc

    Windows key + Q is most useful for me. Takes you straight to the Apps page.

    Two more clicks of the windows key and your back to the desktop.

    Hello Wolfgang,

    The Switch List bar will not open unless you have at least one app previously opened.
