Windows 8 Trick

Sooner or later, many people will have to cope with Windows 8, and the lack of "start menu"
Here is a useful little trick: press simultaneously the Windows and the X keys: you will have direct access to the main computer functions... Enjoy

Re: Windows 8 Trick

Thanks for the tip. Hoping I won't need it. If I can hold out a little longer I can skip 8 and go straight to 9.
