Windows 10: Switching between full screen apps

    Switching between full screen apps

    I know not many people use full screen apps, but how do you easily switch between them

    in 8/8.1
    go to start screen
    load app
    go to start screen
    load another app
    now you can mouse to top left and select which app you want

    in 10
    go to start screen
    load app and use new charms to enable full screen
    go to start screen
    load another app and use new charms to select full screen

    how do I get back to first app with the mouse, moving the mouse to all corners, top, bottom, sides nothing happens
    the only option I can use is the minimize button, which dumps me back on the desktop, then I can select the apps from the taskbar, but they have all lost the full screen setting I selected

    I understand this side of things might not have been worked on yet, but what a confusing/long winded way to swap between apps

    or am I missing something?

    Hey Paul,

    If you like, Task View would be another option to switch between your open apps in Windows 10. :)

    Thanks, I will have a read through all that tomorrow (signing off for the night, my head is going to explode testing out 10 today)

    That looks like it might work via touch, but not sure with keyboard/mouse as when in a full screen app I don't see the taskbar

    Will give it another check tomorrow

    Cheers for the information
