Nah, you just don't have a tablet. It's all there. Give it time.

Remember, this is a pre-beta (Win8 8102) and all of the keyboeard shortcuts aren't going to work out of the gate except for the intended target platform which, as of right now, is a tablet.

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.
