Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Using gestures, part of Learning Windows 8.
If you're using Windows 8 on a touchscreen device, you'll need to get …immediately familiar with the various Gestures that you can use. …But fortunately I think you'll find that those gestures are quite straight forward. …Let's start off with the most basic gesture, the Tap. …This is essentially the same as clicking a mouse button with a mouse pointer over …a particular item. And it means just simply tapping on the display. …So for example, I can simply tap on the tile for the photos app and that Photos …App will launch. And then within the Photo's App I can tap …on a particular item, for example, my SkyDrive, and then tap to navigate to the pictures.…
And even tap on a particular picture to view it Full Screen. …And that brings us to another gesture, which is the Swipe. …In this case, if I want to switch between the various images, for example, I can …swipe one picture out of the frame to bring a new picture into the frame. …I'm just swiping from one picture to the next. …And the same swipe works in a variety of other places as well. …
