Windows 8: Switch between open apps
Whether you have been using the Metro UI or desktop, chances are that you are running multiple applications. For example, you may be in the Windows Store while watching a video. Or if you are developer, you may be running Visual Studio Express 11 while debugging your Windows 8 Metro app. And most importantly, Windows 8 allows you to do switching between apps or running multiple apps at the same time.
When it comes to whether you can switch between open apps or not? Yes, you can and that also very conveniently. You can switch from one app to another app by moving mouse cursor to the upper left corner until the Switch List (apps list panel) pops up. You can then select the app that you want to use.
