Let's say I'm in the Reader app and I want to share the currently read PDF file. So I:

  1. Open the Charms bar
  2. Choose the Share charm
  3. Choose Mail as the app I want to share with.

Then I realise I made a mistake and want to go back to the list of applications compatible with the Share charm. I know I can press the left arrow button with my mouse, but how to do it with a keyboard? In some places, it's possible to use Alt+Left, but here it just doesn't work. Pressing Esc hides the whole charm bar and I have to start from the beginning. Is there a shortcut I'm missing?

You can use Windows+H to open the Share charm. This will take you back a step just like you wanted in your example.

A list of keyboard shortcuts can be found here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/hyperyash/archive/2012/08/28/windows-8-shortcuts.aspx
