Some windows 10 hidden tricks
#1


[Image: 23-hidden-tricks-inside-windows-10_n277.740.jpg]
Microsoft's Windows OS isn't any one thing; it's an interwoven patchwork of features built atop other features that trace back to the beginning of the time-tested operating system.
With such a complex piece of software, it makes sense that there are little tricks and UI flourishes most people don't even know about. Maybe you haven't poked around Windows 10 too much or perhaps you've remained on Windows 7 for all these years. Well, it's time to make the jump, as Microsoft ends support for Windows 7 this week.
Whatever your situation, we've compiled a list of useful tips that will help you get more out of your Windows 10 experience. Or, at least, teach you some things you may not have known about.
Some have been available in Windows for a number of generations, while others are native to Windows 10. Microsoft's most recent update for the OS arrived in November, but the May 2019 update added a bunch of new features and killed a handful of others. So there are plenty of new features and tricks to make the most of a constantly evolving Windows experience.

Secret Start Menu
If you're a fan of that old-school (i.e. non-tiled) Start menu experience, you can still (sort of) have it. If you [b]right-click[/b] on the Windows icon in the bottom-left corner, it will prompt a textual jump menu with a number of familiar popular destinations (Apps and Features, Search, Run). All these options are available through the standard menu interface, but you'll be able to access them quicker through this textual interface.

Show Desktop Button

This desktop button actually dates back to Windows 7, but is handy nontheless. On the bottom-right corner of the desktop is a secret button. Don't see it? Look all the way to the bottom and right, beyond the date and time. There you'll find a small little sliver of an invisible button. Click it to minimize all your open windows.
There's also the option to have windows minimize when you hover over this button versus clicking. Select your preference in [b]Settings > Personalization > Taskbar > Use peek to preview the desktop[/b].

Shake
This feature actually debuted in Windows 7, but I've found a lot of people don't know about it or use it (but they should—it's cool!). If you have a display full of windows, clear the clutter by grabbing the top of the window you do like and "shaking" it to minimize all the other windows. Suddenly having shaker's remorse? Shake again and the windows will come back.

Rotate Your Screen

If you use multiple displays, this feature, available on Windows 7 and 10, allows you to orient a particular monitor to fit your needs. The quickest way to do this is to simultaneously press Ctrl + Alt + D and any of the arrow buttons. The down arrow will flip it upside down, the left or right arrow buttons will turn it 90 degrees on its side, and the up arrow will bring you back to standard orientation.
Alternatively, you can right-click on the desktop background, click Display Settings, then choose an option from the Display Orientation drop-down menu to turn your page around in all sorts of ways.

Enable Slide to Shutdown

This trick is complicated and probably not worth the effort for what you get out of it, but here you go: Right-click on the desktop and select [b]New > Shortcut[/b]. In the ensuing pop-up window, paste the following line of code:

Code:
%windir%\System32\SlideToShutDown.exe

This creates a clickable icon on your desktop, which you can rename. Then double-click on the new icon to prompt a pull-down shade and use your mouse to drag it down to the bottom of the screen. Keep in mind, this isn't sleep, this is a shutdown.

Enable 'God Mode'

Are you a power user who wants access to your PC's nitty gritty? "God mode" is for you. Right-click on the desktop and select [b]New > Folder[/b]. Re-name the new folder with this bit of code:

Code:
GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

To enter the "God Mode" window, double-click the folder and go nuts.

[Image: right-click-on-tiles_z5jf.1080.jpg]
Right-Click on Tiles
Want to personalize those tiles quick? Just right-click on them to prompt a pop-up menu. This menu will give you various options, like the ability to un-pin from the Start menu, resize the windows, or turn that live tile off.

[Image: right-click-on-the-taskbar_g2xy.1080.jpg]
Right-Click on the Taskbar
Here's a handy menu that will allow you to quickly access a number of presets for the toolbars, Cortana, and window schemes. There's a lot there, and it's just a click away.

[Image: drag-to-pin-windows_58gt.1080.jpg]
Drag to Pin Windows

This feature was available as far back as Windows 7, but has some extras in Windows 10.
Grab any window and drag it to the side, where it will "fit" to half the screen. In Windows 10, you have the option of dragging the window to any corner to have the window take over a quarter of the screen instead of half. If you're using multiple screens, drag to a border corner and wait for a prompt signal to let you know if the window will open in that corner.
You can prompt similar behavior by using the Windows key plus any of the directional arrow buttons.

Quickly Jump Between Virtual Desktops

Do you like to multitask on your PC? In Windows 10, Microsoft finally provided out-of-the-box access to virtual desktops. So now you can really multitask.
To try it out, click on Task View (the icon to the right of the Windows menu). This will separate all your open windows and apps into icons. You can then drag any of them over to where it says "New desktop," which creates a new virtual desktop. This would allow you to, say, separate your work apps, personal apps, and social media into different desktops.
Once you click out of Task View, you can toggle between virtual desktops by pressing the Windows button+Ctrl+right/left arrows. This will allow you to automatically switch between all the open windows which you've separated into different desktops, while leaving all the icons on your desktop unmoved.
To remove the virtual desktops, just go back into task view and delete the individual virtual desktops—this will not close out the apps contained within that desktop, but rather just send them to the next lower desktop.

Make Your Command Prompt Window Transparent

This feature will probably only be useful to a narrow niche of users, but if you like to dig your virtual fingers into the innards of Windows via the Command Prompt, Windows 10 provides a ghostly way to interface with it.
To access the Command Prompt interface in Windows 10, click on the Windows menu and type "Command Prompt" to bring up quick access to its desktop app. Click that. You can personalize the experience by right-clicking at the top of the window to prompt a pop-up menu and choose "Properties."
Click over to the Colors tab to see a range of personalization options. At the bottom of this tab, you'll find the Opacity slider, which allows you to see through the Command Prompt window.This feature lets you code away in the Command Prompt while simultaneously observing the desktop.

Silence Notifications With Focus Assist
Formerly known as Quiet Hours, Focus Assist is a redesigned April 2018 Update feature that gives you greater control over the notifications that pop up on your PC. Head to [b]Settings > System > Focus Assist[/b] and then read our full how-to guide for customizing notifications for everything from contacts and apps to task-specific alarms.
