Moving among open apps

With Windows 8, you can easily work with a number of apps open at any one time. You can cycle through them by dragging them in from the left side of the screen, using the thumbnails panel to click the app you want to use, or by pressing the Alt+Tab key combination to display a pop-up window of open apps that you can use to navigate to the program you need. The great thing about the way Windows manages memory is that only the active program—the one you’re viewing on your screen at any given time—is actually using power; the rest of the apps are in suspended mode until you make one them the active program; the apps wake up so quickly that you’ll never know they weren’t fully at the ready, waiting for you to use them.
