    Windows Key Brings up Bottom Task Bar and NOT App screen

    I would like to hit the windows key like in Windows 7 and bring up the bottom taskbar right away AND NOT this app thing....which is useless to me as its not a useful way to open apps....when it consumes the ENTIRE screen.

    Hello ddemers, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Like Windows 7, pressing the Windows key will open Start in Windows 8 as well.

    To open to the taskbar, you could press + T keys instead.

    Hope this helps,
