Navigating the Start Screen with a Keyboard

Everyone’s talking about the new touch features in Windows 8, but you’d be surprised just how many new keyboard shortcuts there are. We’ll get to those in a second, but for now you should know that you can navigate the Start screen using the keyboard. Here’s how:

1. Press Tab. Windows 8 selects the user account tile. If you want to select a command from this tile, press Spacebar, use the up and down arrow keys to select the command, and then press Enter.

2. Press Tab again. Windows 8 selects the first app tile.

3. Use the arrow keys to select the app you want to run.

4. Press Enter. Windows 8 launches the selected app.

Besides this technique, Windows 8 also offers a huge number of Windows Logo key–based shortcuts that enable you to not only navigate the Windows 8 interface quickly, but also let you easily invoke many Windows 8 features and programs. Table 1 provides the complete list.

 Tip

Two other keyboard shortcuts that are important for navigating the Start screen are Ctrl+- (hyphen), which invokes the Semantic Zoom feature, and Ctrl++ (plus), which turns off Semantic Zoom.
