Move groups in Metro start screen with mouse?

    Question

  • During the keynote, it was demonstrated how you could pinch on the home screen to move groups around and optionally name them. That is all well and good, but how do I do the same thing with a mouse and keyboard? The Metro start screen is most definitely "touch-first" - in fact, mouse and keyboard seem to be an afterthought.

  • The demo was done on a different build. Semantic zoom on the start screen and a few other features that were demoed aren't on the developer preview builds as the focus is on the APIs and app development.

    As for how this works with mouse and keyboard, very good question. Guess we'll just have to wait until the Beta :)

  • That doesn't work yet with a touchscreen either.
