Tip of the Week: Did You Know About These Windows Features?

Tip of the Week: Did You Know About These Windows Features?

Does your business use Windows 10? If so, there are all sorts of hidden tips and tricks that can help you gain even more value from your workstations that are running Windows 10. Here are a few of these secrets and how they can help your staff save time.

Show the Desktop
Have you ever had so many applications open at the same time, to the point where all of them need to be closed just to see your desktop? In a business setting, this happens more frequently than you may prefer. Thankfully, there’s a simple way to view your desktop without minimizing or closing out everything that’s open. All you need to do is click on the little button in the bottom-right of your taskbar. It’s pretty easy to miss--it’s all the way to the right, past the time and date, on the right-hand side of your notifications. It will look like just a sliver, so keep your eyes peeled for it.

Rotate Your Screen
If you want to rotate your screen, you can use a simple keyboard shortcut to do so. Ctrl+Alt+D and the direction button for whatever way you want to rotate your screen 90 degrees. While this might not have much practical use, you might be able to use it to rotate an image or document that you’ve opened which isn’t in the upright position.

Right-Click the Start Menu Tiles and Taskbar
Right-clicking the tiles in the Start menu allows you to customize them. You can change their size, unpin them from the Start menu, and even turn off live tiles that you don’t want. Similarly, you can perform various activities by right-clicking the taskbar, including adding shortcuts, activating Cortana, and so much more.
