10 Windows 10 Tips

Check out these nifty Windows 10 tips, hacks and tweaks to get the most out of this operating system.

  1. You can resize the Start menu, making it so that it only takes up a small corner of your screen, or as large as your entire desktop. Just drag from the corners.
  2. Options for shutting down, rebooting, and sleeping your PC are now located in the Start menu. Select the "Power" entry in the Start menu to access these options.
  3. Create multiple desktops. Start by clicking the task view button next to the search bar (or icon) in your taskbar, which will bring up a button in the bottom-right corner of your screen labeled "+ New desktop." Just click this button to create a second desktop, then click it again to create a third, and so on.
  4. If you want to quickly maximize any window, just click and hold the title bar, then drag it all the way to the top edge of your screen. As soon as you let go of your mouse, the window will be maximized.
  5. To print anything as a PDF file, just pick the “Microsoft Print to PDF” printer.
  6. Alt + Tab: Shows all open windows. Press tab repeatedly, then release to switch to the open window.
  7. Windows key + Tab: Like Alt + Tab, except it stays open and doesn’t disappear when you release keys.
  8. Windows key + Control + D: Creates new virtual desktop.
  9. Windows key + Control + F4: Closes current virtual desktop.
  10. Windows key + Control + Left or Right: Switch between virtual desktops.
