Windows 8 Consumer Preview
I’ll give you some quick tips on navigating around Windows8 Consumer Preview.
Load a program
You see the large tiles on the Start screen, click those and they load the program. Easy.
Close a program
Put the mouse at the top of the screen, left click and hold, drag down to the bottom of the screen, release the mouse button. The program is closed.
Switching between programs
Say you have the Photos, Mail, Messaging and Weather Apps open at the same time. Switch between the apps is quite easy and there are 2 ways to do it. Put your mouse in the upper left corner and you’ll see a thumbnail of the app appear. Click there and it will switch to that app. Easy and quick.
The next way is to put your mouse pointer at the top left corner and slide down along the left edge. This will show you a list of all available apps that are currently running, just click the one you want to get too and you are there. Quick and easy.
