Touch device tips

File Explorer

The screenshot below [figure 1] is from a free metro app I installed a while back called Metro Commander.

Good app compared to the Desktop app. You need to download it from the web using the Store app [figure 2].

The app is a metro or Modern UI app so it runs in what I like to call native mode that some may call metro or modern. UI stands for user interface. The screenshots are from my desktop that I’m typing from this very moment. It should be more touch intuitive, if you will, than File Explorer that you would use to explore the file system in the legacy Desktop mode.

Start menu

Swipe [gesture] from the right to get the Charms menu then tap the Start button [figure 3]. Tapping on this button will get you to the Start menu or as I sometimes call it the Start screen.
