Windows 8 Gestures Guide Released


Kurt Shintaku's Blog - DOWNLOAD: Windows 8 Gestures Guide

This downloadable guide to the basic touch gestures available within Windows 8 from Official Windows Magazine can be a nice handout to give to end users not familiar with the conventions used for touch on Windows-based devices.

Gestures covered include:

  • Select or perform action
  • App-specific commands
  • Get more options
  • Drag & move items
  • Find recently used apps
  • Close application
  • Zoom in & out
  • Settings commands & search
  • Turn & pivot
  • Switch between apps


It's one page, quick and easy if you're giving Windows 8 to anyone this coming holiday season...
