If you right-click on the Windows icon within the bottom-left corner, it’ll prompt a textual jump menu with variety of familiarstandard destinations (Programs and options, Search, Run). all thesechoicesareoffered through the standard menu interface, howeveryou will beable to access them faster through this textual interface.

2 – Secret desktop shortcut

This desktop button really dates back to Windows seven, however I embarrassingly only recently discoveredabout it. On the bottom-right corner of your page, there is a secret desktop button. do not see it? Look allll the way tothe bottomand right, to the aspect of the date and time. There you will finda smallvery little sliver of an invisible button. Click that and it’ll minimize all of your open windows to clear the desktop. you’ll be able tochange the behavior of this in Settings, between having to click or simply having to hover the mouse over the corner.

3 – Rotate Your Screen via Keyboard Ctrl-Alt-D Arrows

This tip will not be helpful to most of y’all, however you’ll rotate your screen by at the same time pressing Ctrl + alt + D and any of the arrow buttons. The down arrow can flip it upside down, the left or right arrow buttons can flip it ninetydegrees on its aspect, and also the up arrow can bring you back to plain orientation. If you employ multiple displays, this feature permits you to orient simply that show in a very explicit means.

Alternatively, you’ll right-click on the desktop background > Graphics choices > Rotation to show your page around all told kinds of ways in which. This feature is out there on Windows seven and ten.

4 – Enable Slide to Shutdown

This trick its only for Windows ten . It’s complicated and probably not worth the effort but here you go:
Right-click on the desktop > New > Shortcut. In the ensuing pop-up window, paste the following line of code:

%windir%\System32\SlideToShutDown.exe

This creates a clickable icon on your desktop, which you can feel free to rename to whatever you’d like. To shut down via slide-down, double-click on the new icon to prompt a pull-down shade. Then use your mouse to drag it down to the bottom of the screen. Keep in mind, this isn’t sleep, this is a shutdown.
