winkey + arrow key still seems to work.

(I just had my copy of win 8 set up in a virtue machine. Both drag and snap and winkey arrow works out of the box.)

In the Desktop use the top left Hot Corner and find the open Metro app you want to use, grab it and pull it down a bit. You'll see the divider bar which you can move around to feature the Metro app and thumbnail the desktop apps. Slide the divider back to feature the Desktop, etc.

Yeah it works,but divider allows only two apps at a time.More than 2 apps cannot be viewed at the same time using divider.

In the example above you see 1 Metro app and 5 Desktop apps and I think were more on the scroll bar
