If you have multiple Windows 8 apps going, Windows 8 gives you two ways to switch between them using a mouse:

• Position the mouse pointer in the top-left corner of the screen. Windows responds by showing you a thumbnail version of the next running app (see Figure 1); click to switch to that app. If you want to cycle through the apps, leave the mouse pointer in the top-left corner and keep clicking.

Figure 1. Move the mouse pointer to the top-left corner of the screen to see a thumbnail of the next running app.

• Move the mouse pointer into the top-left corner of the screen and when the thumbnail of the next app appears, slide the mouse pointer straight down. Once you get below the next app, Windows 8 displays a list of all running Windows 8 apps, as shown in Figure 2. Click the app you want to use. Notice, too, that the list of running Windows 8 apps includes the Start screen at the bottom, and you can click that to return to the Start screen.

Figure 2. Move the mouse pointer to the top-left corner of the screen and then slide it down to see a list of your up-and-running Windows 8 apps.

Here are the techniques to use to switch between Windows 8 apps using a tablet PC:

• To switch to the next running app, slide to the right from the left edge of the screen. Your finger drags in a thumbnail of the next app, and when you release your finger from the screen the app fills up the screen.

• To see the list of running Windows 8 apps, slide in from the left edge again, but this time when you see the next app appear under your finger, reverse course and slide your finger back to the left edge of the screen. As soon as your finger hits the ledge, the app disappears and you see the list of running apps, and you then tap the one you want.


Tip

You can also switch to another Windows 8 app using the keyboard. For example, you can quickly switch between the current Windows 8 app and the Start screen by pressing the Windows Logo key. You can also hold down the Windows key and then tap Tab. When you do this, Windows 8 displays the list of running Windows 8 apps. With the Windows key held down, keep pressing Tab until the app you want is highlighted, then release the Windows key.
