Someone needs to make a Windows 8 wallpaper with all the keyboard shortcuts listed on it so people can easily learn and find them. We need a super pro GFX artist. tongue.gif

Here's my screenshot:

It's running on my sig rig. Too bad I couldn't change my name for my current account. Had to create a new account and build up the start menu from scratch.
Anyhow I've come to enjoy working with the interface and have discovered a few hidden menus here and there (mainly in two of the four corners).

Warmonger: Please add ShooterFX's post to the OP. I feel as if it would help a lot of people out, especially if they are not like me and press Win + (random buttons) to find out what they did. biggrin.gif

I shall be posting a picture of my start menu. I wonder if Outlook 2012 will install a Live Tile to see emails like the current Mail tile...?

I'm using it again now that's its the Release Preview. Only regrets I have are for some reason PandoraOne will randonly say I have no internet connection when trying to play a song, but just hitting connect fixes it. And all my games launch twice for some reason =/.

A friend of mine made this up the other night and I believe it highlights some good features of the Release Preview!

Does music play for you guys in the Music Metro app? It sees my music, but it cannot play WMA Lossless, ALAC, nor AAC.

Here's my screenshot please add me to the club. smile.gif

I'm going to have to give Win8 a try... Geez, I need a second SSD. It sucks when you put another OS on a mech drive instead of a SSD, feels sluggish by default. My Ubuntu install feels like I'm riding a 2 legged horse compared to my sports car windows 7 install lol.

With that being said... that new task manager window looks closer to the one used in Linux OSes. The colored graph, and etc. Welcomed change though.
