Windows 8 Keyboard Shortcuts

I'm a big fan of Keyboard shortcuts, you'll notice a number of posts previously on my blog regarding such.

I don't have Win8 yet but was just reading a review: Idea Man: Paul's take on Windows 8. I figured it would be a good move to record the following for future use/reference:

Win+C: All charms
Win+Q: Search charm
Win+H: Share charm
Win: Start charm
Win+K: Devices charm
Win+I: Settings charm
Win+Q: Search apps (tip: an even easier way to search apps is to just begin typing from the Start screen)
Win+W: Search settings
Win+F: Search files  

Apps (Metro)
Win+Z: Get to app options
Win+.: Snap app to the left
Win+Shift+.: Snap app to the right
Alt+F4: Close an app  

Win+D: Open Desktop
Win+,: Peek at desktop
Win+B: Back to desktop

Win+X: Open system utility settings menu
Win+PrntScrn: Take screenshot and save to Pictures
Win+Tab: Open switch list
Win+T: Preview open windows in taskbar
Win+U: Open Ease of Access Center
Win+Spacebar: Switch language and keyboard
Win+Enter: Open Windows Narrator
