A good tip which I've found rather useful is, move your mouse to the bottom left, here you will either see the short-cut to desktop, or if your on the desktop a short-cut to the Metro Start menu, BUT if you right click the bottom left corner, it will reveal some handy options. (Control Panel etc..)
When you have a particular application open, go to the right and the charm menu will appear, click the settings icon, here you will find options for that particular application. Furthermore you will also see some power options at the bottom of the charm menu, one of which actually lets you shut the PC down or restart (it was hard to find at first)
Try this also: Be on the Metro Start Menu Home thingy, and just literally start typing, the OS will find everything on your PC relating to your search and order it by category, also after you have done a search you can click an application down the right side and the application will open with the keywords in place for example you can type "google" then choose the application like "IE" and it will return a search for the keyword "google".
Using IE10, to switch between tabs you must right click on an empty space in the IE10 window.
To open the frequently used website page, you must start typing/click into the address bar.
The charm menu also includes a search function and a share function as I remember.
To have a side by side window, go to the top, drag a window to the side, a vertical bar will appear when it does, release the window. Then go to the top left move your mouse down, and click another application, it should open next to the one you moved to the side. With the vertical bar you can make either windows bigger or smaller. But if you move it too fast, one app will cover the whole screen again.
If you go to the bottom right when on the Metro Home screen, and click the magnifier glass tiny icon, you can zoom out and re-arrange your Home screen, right clicking a block of apps you may have will allow you to re-name them. To go back just click on the screen. You can re-arrange tiles and delete them if you wish (just right-click).
There is probably more, but that's just off the top of my head. Seems complicated for something that's supposed to be simple. Tablet OS it smells of, gestures and all. But I do find it fun to use, just a little claustrophobic at times.
I'd rather build something to be proud of. Build a system that is my own. Acquire upgrades and peripherals in my own time. Enjoy my creation as it evolves.STEAM ID: KPAkillerOrigin ID: KPAkiller[URL="http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2039900"]
