Keyboard shortcut for "Task view"

Hi everyone. I love the new "Task view" feature in windows 10 but I think it will be more cool if Microsoft can create a keyboard shortcut for it. That will make it faster to access, and navigate the different opened Tabs/Desktops using the navigation keys. If it exists already can someone please share?

Win + Tab seems to work for me. This was the old key combo for the 3d aero view that was removed in 8 if I remember correctly.

I guess search is broken both here and on the Internet in general.

Win+Tab - open Task View

Win+CTRL+left/right - cycle through virtual desktops

Good questions deserve "Me Too". Good answers deserve "Likes".

What about creating a new virtual desktop? Is there a shortcut for that?

Great info here but it would be much more useful for me to be able to go directly to a Task View. Say jump to Desktop 3 directly without all the flipping around to get it it.

Right now WIN+# brings up  the pinned taskbar items. Would rather do desktops but that's just me. Suggestion: Something like "WIN+CNT+#" where number is the one I wanna go to maybe.

Thank goodness you posted this! It's been driving me crazy since I'm used to OSX's desktop switching being so easy. Thanks!

It would be great to have a single-key shortcut for that.

Since I use the Task View button more often than Start button, my suggestion is to use the WIN key, or at least allow the user to choose between the two options (Task View or Start Menu).

By the way, to display Start Menu I usually do not use WIN key but go straight to the bottom left corner with the mouse and click (it is easier than stopping at the Task View button, isn't it?).

Cheers,

Mauro
