Best Windows 10 Tips and Tricks

Windows 10 Tips and Tricks
  • Virtual Desktop – Virtual desktop in windows 10 allows you to multitask by pressing “Windows + Tab” keys simultaneously. You can use the already available new desktop or create a new one. This feature allows you to transition from currently working apps to a separate new desktop just like you have restarted the computer.
  • Aero Shake – Aero shake allows you to minimize all the clutter windows opened by only leaving the current window. All you have to do is point the cursor to the current window title bar by holding the left mouse button and shake it left to right while holding on it.
  • Slide to Shutdown – slide to shutdown allows you to shutdown the computer in a more quick and interactive way by creating a desktop shortcut using New➜ Shortcut ➜ paste “%windir%\System32\SlideToShutDown.exe” and then entering your choice of name for the shortcut. After that all you have to do is open this shortcut and slide the window down to shutdown OR slide up to cancel the task.
  • Dark Mode – Dark mode has become a popular feature in mobile phones but it is also available in Windows 10 as an option which can be turned on by going to “Settings➜ Personalization ➜ Colors and select Dark from dropdown options”
  • Nearby Sharing – Nearby sharing allows you to share files or documents with nearby devices using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It can be turned on by going to “Settings➜ System ➜ Shared experiences ➜ Turn on Nearby Sharing.” After that, all you have to do is open file explorer and choose the file or document for sharing, then click on the share tab and select share and select the device you to share with. In order for this to work, the other device needs to have nearby sharing turned on as well.
  • Open Pinned Programs – This trick allows you to open pinned programs on taskbar quickly by pressing “windows + (number-in-sequence)”. For an example, if File explorer is pinned as the second program in sequence on the taskbar, you can open it by only pressing “windows + 2”. However only a maximum of 10 programs can be opened in this manner.
  • God Mode – God mode, as it sounds, allows you to have quick access to systems and control panel settings listed in a single place/folder. This feature can be turned on by creating a new folder on the desktop (right-click on the desktop New ➜ Folder ➜) and naming it as “{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}”
  • Steps recorder – This feature allows you to record every step you take on windows from start to the stop of the recorder. It will take a screenshot of every step you have done and include a small description of that step as well. This feature can be opened by simply searching “Steps Recorder” in windows search menu.
