Windows 10 tricks you probably didn't know about
Windows 10 has been out for a few months now, but I'm sure there are still some tips and tricks that you don't know about.
Here are a few quick ones.
To minimize all windows except one, click the title bar at the top of the window you want to remain open and shake it back and forth.
All the other windows will be minimized.
If you start shaking it again, the other windows will reappear.
If you have a window open and you want to reposition it, use the windows key and the directional arrows to move it around.
Pressing the left key will move it to the left, the down key will move it to the lower left corner and so on.
Looking to quickly access the settings panel?
Try pressing the windows and I key at the same time.
Want to check out the new action center?
Press the windows and A key together.
Now most people know that simply tapping the windows key will open the start menu, but if you want to access the alternative menu try pressing the windows and X key at the same time.
And lastly, if you pin programs to the task bar you can quickly open them by pressing the Windows and the number key that corresponds with the position of the program on the bar.
So if I want to open Chrome, all I have to do is tap the Windows and 3 key at the same time.
