I am trying to get back to the start menu with a touch screen on my convertible tablet. Let's say I'm browsing the internet. If I hit the "windows" key, I can immediately switch to start screen. But what if I don't want to use the (physical) keyboard at all? What's the equivalent from the touch screen while I'm browsing the web?

swiping from the right will bring up a virtual start button, press that and you should be back at the Metro UI
