The best shortcuts, tricks, and tweaks for Windows

Windows is riddled with shortcuts that are not obvious to every user. And I have to admit – I know it from my daily work with this system – some of them just facilitate the things I have to do very often. And I’m not talking about copying, pasting, cutting, and so on: I’m cutting speculation right away. If you know the following tricks – great, I am glad that you are aware of them and thanks to them your work goes better. If you do not know – you have just found an entry that will change your life. Or something like that.

# 1: Old-style Start Menu

For some, the hidden function of the Start Menu in Windows 10 is not entirely obvious. Beloved, try pressing the combination: “Windows + X” now. Can you see that menu? Cool? Sure it’s cool. From here you have access to what is most important in the system – simple, fast and fun. You can also call this area with the mouse – just press the right mouse button on the “Start” button.

In this area you can also very quickly shutdown the system, put the machine to sleep or run PowerShell with administrator privileges. A very useful thing that relatively few people know about. And if you do, I congratulate you!

# 2: Handle the clutter on the screen

An incredibly useful thing. Basically, shaking things up doesn’t bring order to a particular place – but under Windows it works. Run a calculator for yourself. Make sure you have other windows visible on your screen. Grab its bar, on its axis there are buttons for closing, minimizing and maximizing the window. Shake it (exactly as if you are shaking something). What happened?
