The Most Important Windows 10 Tips And Tricks

Windows 10 Tips And Tricks

Window 10 is full of surprises with its new different tips and tricks. Let’s discuss a few of them.

  1. Use Storage Sense to Manage Storage:

With the help of Storage sense feature, the Windows will automatically delete temporary and junk files in the trash to release storage on the device. To enable this feature, we need to go to Settings -> System -> Storage -> Toggle “ON” the Storage sense option. This feature can be further customised as when to run the disk clean up when it is low in storage or weekly or monthly by choosing the option Configure Storage Sense. On the other hand, this feature might accidentally delete important files too, so have to be careful while using it.

  1. Dynamic Lock:

It is useful for people who forget locking their Windows device when they move away from it. This feature uses a Bluetooth connection between your Windows device and your phone to track the distance between you and your device believing that you keep your phone handy with you all times. If the distance between them is out of range, then it automatically locks the Windows device. To enable it you need to go to Settings -> Accounts -> Sign-in Options -> Turn “On” the Dynamic Lock Feature. After enabling this feature then, the last step would be to pair your phone with your PC and you are good to go.

  1. Privacy Setting:

It is a trait of Windows to record the usage of a user to provide a better service. But if you are not comfortable to sharing your information with Microsoft, then we can enable the Privacy Settings and decide what you want and don’t want to share with the Microsoft company. To do this, we have to go to Settings -> Privacy -> General -> Turn Off the buttons that you don’t want Windows to keep track about. You can also restrict Windows from tracking your typing and inking history by going to “Inking and typing personalization” and turning it off.

  1. Record Screen using Xbox App:

One of the features of Windows allows you to record or take a video of your screen along with your system and mic audio. This feature is known as “Game Capture”. To start recording press “Windows + G” keyboard shortcut and the recording menu will pop up. You can set your preferences and click the record button to start recording your screen.

  1. Virtual Desktops:

This feature which was earlier available with Linux and OS X has been introduced by Microsoft to manage the opened applications and windows by putting them in a group. To use this, we need to press “windows+tab” keys together or click the Task view directly as well. You can drag the tiles or active windows under the “+ New Desktop”.

  1. Command Prompt Copy and Paste:

In the Command prompt by default, you cannot copy and paste the text. But it is possible to enable the “ctrl+” features by opening the command prompt screen. Right click on the title bar, select properties and then tick the box with the “Enable Ctrl key shortcuts” option.

  1. God Mode:

In Windows 10 many settings are placed into the Start menu, Control Panel, and System Settings. However, if we want to have easy access to all these settings by having them together at one place we need to do this step. Right click on the Desktop screen -> New -> Folder. Then you have to rename the New Folder to “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} and hit enter/return to make it stick. This makes the Folder icon look like that of the Control panel, and when you open the icon, you can find all the settings over there.

  1. Windows-V:

We mostly use “ctrl+c” and “ctrl+v” to copy and paste. But this got limitations as it stores only the last text copied. The “windows+v” feature provides lists of previously copied text, and the user can pick one from those lists. To enable this feature, go to Settings -> System -> Clipboard -> Turn on Clipboard History. Now you can use windows+v keyboard shortcut instead of ctrl+v to copy two texts one after the other.
