    You can access with right click of bottom left corner. Not all these features were as immediately accessible even then.

    This can be edited to add your own things as well. There is a thread here somewhere. If I find it, I will edit this post.

    Unfortunatelly, when put the shortcut in AutoIt script (AU3) as:

    Code:
    #NoTrayIcon
    Send("#x")
    or
    Code:
    #NoTrayIcon
    Send("{LWINdown}x{LWINup}")
    ...it doesn't work for the unknown reason (in W7 it works - after some action is mapped to that shortcut (for example via HotKeyBind v1-2) :(

    Yes it is a good hot key to use. I did not know about the right click option to bring up that menu though. I think that once people learn all the new functions in the Win8 UI they will like it.
