Windows 10 tips & tricks

The following is a guide so that you become a master in operating Windows 10. Surely most of you don't know about this, from various hidden shortcuts to ways to save battery

Whether you've been using Windows 10 for years or just upgraded from Windows 7 or 8.1. Lots of tips, tricks and hidden features both new and old to learn, which will make your daily use of your laptop/PC faster and more efficient. Learning to operate Windows 10 to be faster and more productive on your laptop/PC, this may be very interesting because many of you are still working from home due to this prolonged pandemic.

Microsoft usually doesn't publish its hidden features like Apple does. This of course will make it difficult for Windows users to know how to use the OS they use every day optimally and efficiently.

Did you know that even learning how to upgrade to Windows 10 for free can be tricky. You'll want to do this ASAP, as support for Windows 7 ended last year. So, regardless of the brand of your laptop/PC, whether Dell, HP, Asus, Lenovo, etc. that use Windows 10, some of the tips and tricks that we will discuss soon will help you stay focused and get more work done later.

  • Minimize all windows except the active one

If your desktop screen is too full of windows open, you can quickly minimize everything except the one you're currently using.

Just select it and click the title bar on the Window you want to keep open. Then, hold down the mouse and move / shake the Window right left or up and down quickly. After a few quick shakes, all other open Windows will be minimized, leaving the Window you've been shaking open. Cool, right? Surely you just found out!

  • Open Secret 'Start' Menu

We're telling you, you can access it in two different ways, either by pressing Windows key + X, or right-clicking the Windows icon / Start button.
