Windows Key + Down Arrow–I didn’t know that

I accidently did Windows Key + Down Arrow. 

  • For Windows Store apps - It turn out that is closes an app.  Interestingly enough, the app isn’t removed from memory.  If is suspended and removed from the Windows 8 Task list (Windows Key+Tab), but it remains in memory in case you load it again.
  • For Classic Windows apps – the app is minimized

    Just learned something new 🙂

    Win + Down Arrow = Minimize

    Win + Up Arrow  = Maximize

    Win + Left Arrow = Fill up Left Half of screen with currently running App

    Win + Right Arrow = Fill up Right Half of screen with currently running App

    So much easier to do side-by-side editing now 🙂
