Shortcut keys for windows 8

I am very exiting to instal & running Microsoft’s New operating system Windows 8. i have to say this can be a amendment within the game and therefore the approach windows is used. i’m still obtaining accustomed jumping between Metro style applications, and therefore the desktop applications. one in all the annoying things I found but is jumping between the beginning menu, charms choices and therefore the desktop on a portable computer that’s not bit enabled.  moving the mouse to the proper corner may be a bit slow and cumbersome.  This caused be to seem for a few keyboard short cuts.  The one i have been searching for is Windows Key (Win) + C.  Happy W8ting!
