In Windows 8.0 and Windows RT you can right-click in the bottom-left corner to access a menu of commonly used desktop links. You can access the same menu with the keyboard using Windows+X.
Is there a way to access this menu using touch?
I have a Surface RT and have tried a number of gestures in the corner (e.g., press and hold, swipe down) on both the Desktop and the Start Screen without any luck.
EDIT: This issue is fixed in Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1. You can press and hold on the reinstated Start button to access the Quick Link menu.
