Windows 8 Initial User Experience

Today is the second day I'm using a Windows 8 laptop.  Load up time is fast, and changing applications is very smooth.  However, I keep finding myself hitting the windows key (double-clicking a PDF file, and, what?  How do I get back?)

Other than that, the experience has been fine.  So far this has not been any worse than other windows upgrade experience I had so far.  No bad news is good news here.

Gravatar The best things to remember are:
1. The windows key will bring you back almost always
2. If you put your mouse in the upper left corner and drag down (without clicking), you'll bring up all your active metro apps. It's a great way to navigate between the metro ui and desktop, as well as closing lingering metro apps.

Gravatar Thanks, J. I was using the "Windows Key + Tab"; didn't know the mouse option exists.
