So, you've installed the Windows 8 Developer Preview and you're feeling a bit disoriented? You've got company. And you've come to the right place.

Windows 8 introduces some fundamental changes to the way familiar actions work, and the demos Microsoft has been offered are typically geared toward showing off new touchscreen devices. If you're like most people, you're trying Windows 8 on a conventional PC equipped with a keyboard and mouse.

On the next few pages, I've assembled a collection of shortcuts and tips to help you navigate the "reimagined" Windows 8 interface. In every case, you can accomplish the same results using a keyboard and mouse as you can with touch, but the optimal technique isn’t always obvious until you learn it.
