Now with Windows 8 there is even more love! Will you make the most of it or are you “one of those users”? My mom, by the way, is holding a user group next Thursday for those users – BYOB (bring your own bengay). 😉
Actually: my mom isn’t holding a user group next Thursday – if you are one of those users, then you are on your own!
My favorite use of the Windows key in Windows 7 was to use Windows key + Shift + the Left/Right arrows. This keystroke combination effortlessly relocated the current window from one monitor to another.
This was only second to Windows key + the Left/Right arrows (without Shift this time). This quickly snapped the current window to the left or right edges of the monitor. Keyboard equivalents to mouse actions were everywhere in Windows 7 – and remain in Windows 8.
I have already blogged on many of the new keystrokes in Windows 8. But in a my colleague, Jeremy Foster’s excellent blog article, it hit me that the value of some new keystrokes are not well understood by the consumers who are previewing Windows 8.
