Today I was talking with my friend Etienne Margraff – also know as Emmanuel – (blog and twitter)and I told him how boring and time-consuming it was to press Win+F to access the search screen on my windows 8 application. Two fingers are too much for me !
Then he gave me a very useful tip to gain in productivity: instead of pressing Win+F, just press the Win key and start typing the name of the app you seek. The search screen will then appear by magic displaying the found results 🙂
This is in fact the behavior of Windows 7 start menu but I forgot it :-s ! Maybe because of all this flashy metro tiles !
