Below are my 8 favorite Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts / hotkeys to use:

  1. Windows key + M minimizes everything on your desktop so you can see the background.
  2. Windows key + Shift + M restores all the windows you just minimized above (but not ones individually minimized beforehand).
  3. Windows key + E opens the windows explorer for quick access to files and folders on your computer.
  4. Windows key brings up your metro start screen along with quick search for applications and files.
  5. Windows key + L locks your computer so when you walk away your coworkers won’t install silly software.
  6. Alt + Tab cycles you through open windows.
  7. Windows + P  let’s you change your screen setup
  8. Windows + left or right arrow allows you to cycle through your windows quickly.
