From casual computer users to those of us who want to get the absolute most out of our work time, keyboard shortcuts can be a convenient way of streamlining your activity. If you type a lot like I do, your preference is probably to have both hands on the keyboard as often as possible. Windows 10 comes with some great WIN key combinations that can help quicken your pace.
|WIN+L||Locks your screen so that anyone coming to your computer must put in your password to unlock it and continue working|
|WIN + Up or Down Arrow||Toggles between minimizing or maximizing the currently selected window|
|WIN + Left or Right Arrow||Toggles position of the currently selected window to include half-screen snap (also useful for multiple monitors)|
|WIN + Tab||Activates Task View|
|WIN + 1 through 0||Launches items in the corresponding order that are pinned to your taskbar|
|WIN + A||Brings up Action Center|
|SHIFT + DEL||Permanently deletes the selected file/email bypassing the recycle bin or delete items folder|
|WIN + C||Activates Cortana With Speech Recognition|
|WIN + D||Show Desktop|
|WIN + E||Opens File Explorer (like Windows Explorer on older versions)|
|WIN + I||Opens Windows 10 Settings Screen|
|WIN + D||Show Desktop|
|WIN + Shift + Left or Right Arrow||Move apps from one monitor to another|
One of the coolest features in Windows 10 is the ability to create Virtual Desktops. Using Virtual Desktops can enable to you to gain many of the benefits of multiple monitors without having to have extra physical monitors hogging up all of your personal space.
|WIN + Ctrl + D||Create a new Virtual Desktop|
|WIN + Ctrl + F4||Close a new Virtual Desktop|
|WIN + Ctrl + Left or Right Arrow||Switch between Virtual Desktops|
