Windows Key Application Search is in Windows 8

E-mail Print PDF

When I saw the Metro interface I was worried that one of my favorite new features in Windows 7 would be gone. To launch most applications I now just press the Windows key and type the first few letters of the program's name. The program pops up at the top of the search since the search field is selected by default. Then I press enter to launch it. It's much quicker than using the mouse. To launch MS Word for example I press Windows Key, W, O, R, D, and Enter. If you haven't try it, you should give it a shot.

Anyway, Metro looks so much different I was worried this feature was gone. It's been integrated into Metro though. It is a bit more jarring to jump out of the desktop to the Metro interface than just having the Start Menu pop up, but I don't think it will bother me once I'm more familiar with the Windows 8 interface.
