    Continue holding the Windows key until we select what we need from the list
    .
    In this case, there is only one application here, Weather. If we had multiple apps running, we could use our arrow keys to change the selection, or use the mouse to select any of them. We could also press the tab key again to select the next application. To select it, let go of the Windows button. We will be brought directly to the app.
