Very info7rmative page to learn about Wdws 8, but also how to navigate quickly through it. It's helping me like it more and more, as when I first installed it, I was ready to go back to 7 in a matter of minutes. I figured there had to be something better about this operating system, You're slowly winning me over one day at a time..

Cheat Keys Insults App Usability

Fail 1: clunkware, click tile to select and then right click to find Favorites button ( update so clicking any tile auto reveals bottom bar with Favorites button ( !!! fail... Fail 2: Favorites not implemented ( example is option or auto sort tiles so Favorites come first when Cheat Keys opens ( !! fail... Fail 3: Favorites is a skinny popup list without functionality ( sort tiles and other missing list commands glaring omission ( !! fail... Fail 4: Lazy bones, this app more than any other needs user drag-and-drop sort API ( so stupid not to include what should be your first useful App capability ( !!! fail... Cheat Keys fail list goes on and on and on ( you are not even ready for gen3 App which is device sensitive indexing ( but great platform idea here, so why not pull it out of the dust bin where you have dumped it ! luv icon...

New to Windows 8

Being a newbie to this OS I downloaded the app to give me a few pointers for learning to use Windows 8. Windows 8 Cheat keys is loaded with stacks of key board short cuts, I'm sure that if I learned them all I wouldn't need to use the mouse the mouse again.



I really enjoy this app, I really like the closing trick.

If you haven't got touchscreen then its for you

I got an touchscreen, but in midnight I don't use it but this app shows you easy ways to use Windows 8 e.g, How to close a Window or use Shortcuts. Really amazing for me, so I highly recommend if you haven't got touchscreen, but if you have you might sometimes you don't use it very often then this is for you. Really easy brilliant, and is build for Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.


Learning lots

Have a pen and paper ready to write yourself reminders.. There is lots to remember :) So far its all good info

The best

this is seriously good app with well thought usability. way ahead of anything I saw in this category. one suggestion though: consider a user setting to have different layouts (i'd like to have 2,3 or 4 rows selector) - on my laptop I can place more item on a screen but I see only 2 rows.
