Windows Key commands in Dev Preview (Classic Desktop)

    Question

  • From what I can see on it, I cannot use any of the windows key commands (part of the best features of all time that were in Windows 7)

    Windows-P

    Windows-L

    Windows-R

    I can't get any of these to work correctly.  Can anyone else confirm that this is a bug or a feature or is it just my experience? (I'm running it in a Virtual Machine.)

  • I agree with MCCZ, all these including many other shortcuts work well. But one thing that I would like to have is: there should be a way to go back to the lock screen from password screen after we swipe up the lock screen to get the password screen. For example, I locked my PC and went off and some Joe tried to play with my machine but found that its password protected! So there should be a way to pull back the beautiful back screen. Perhaps windowKey+L again to bring it back OR preferably; swipe top-to-bottom to get it back like a shutter. the latter would work with both touch and mouse OR both to cater all three inputs devices including keyboard.    :3 )
