    The Windows 10 Technical Preview adds all sorts of nifty new features designed to appeal to PC power users, but it also includes some nifty newcomers that you can’t actually see—fresh keyboard shortcuts!

    Thanks Borg 386. :)

    That article was strangely written.
    "Windows key + Left Arrow" and "Windows key + Right Arrow" exist in W7.
    They are the Windows-related keyboard shortcuts that I use most often (I use them multiple times per day).

    It reminds me of all of the W8 articles that pretended that pressing the Windows key and typing the name of a program was a new W8 feature.

    I was wondering if there were shortcuts for the new snapping combinations.
    I'll have to try "Windows key + Up Arrow" and "Windows key + Down Arrow".

    For the lazy ones, heh:

    Snapping window: Windows key + Left or Right — LeBlanc says: "(Can be used with UP or DOWN to get into quadrants.)" Quadrants is the new Snap view mode that pins apps to the four quarters of the screen.
    Switch to recent window: Alt + Tab – LeBlanc says: "Hold shows new Task View window view, let go and switches to app."
    Task view: Windows + Tab – LeBlanc says: "New Task view opens up and stays open."
    Create new virtual desktop: Windows key + Ctrl + D
    Close current virtual desktop: Windows key + Ctrl + F4
    Switch virtual desktop : Windows key + Ctrl + Left or Right
