Tip of the Week: 10 Handy Windows 10 Keyboard Shortcuts

b2ap3_thumbnail_shortcuts_for_windows_10_400.jpgWith the launch of Windows 10, many users are upgrading and loving every second of it. As always, a new operating system comes with a learning curve, including getting to know the new features and keyboard shortcuts. To get the most out of Windows 10, you can try these ten great hotkey combinations to get through your workday with blazing speed.

[WinKey + S] Activates Cortana
[WinKey + C] Activates Cortana with Speech
Microsoft’s Cortana feature, which was once exclusive to Windows Phone users, is now built into Windows 10 by default. She acts as a personal voice assistant, much like Apple’s Siri. You can use these shortcuts to make more effective use of Cortana.

[WinKey + Ctrl + D] Creates a New Virtual Desktop
[WinKey + Ctrl + F4] Close Virtual Desktop
[WinKey + Ctrl + Left or Right] Switch Between Virtual Desktops
One of the neat new features Windows 10 offers is virtual desktops, which will most likely be used by enterprises to enhance productivity. You can easily use the above keystrokes to navigate through your current virtual desktops, plus open and close them on your local desktop.

[WinKey + Shift + Left or Right] Move Apps from One Monitor to Another
Workers generally use two monitors to get the most done, but if you’re working with several different applications, it can be a bother to continually resize the windows and move them about. To make this process much easier, use the above keystroke while you have a window selected.

[WinKey + K] Activates Connect Feature to Stream to Wireless Displays and Audio Devices
This keystroke is pretty self explanatory, and it will be used often by those who regularly access Connect.

[WinKey + R] Run a Command
Regardless of how many new features there are in Windows 10, the basics still apply. You’ll want to access the Run Command function. This keystroke makes it much easier to do so.

[WinKey + I] Opens Windows 10 Settings
As one of the most customizable operating systems Microsoft has created, Windows 10 offers plenty of great ways you can put the “personal” back in your PC. Use this keystroke to make navigating to your settings easier.

[WinKey + G] Activates the New Xbox Game Bar to Let You Record Games or Take Screenshots
All you gamers out there are going to love this keystroke.
