Tip of the Week: Neat Windows 10 Features

Tip of the Week: Neat Windows 10 Features

With Windows 10 being a major part of most business’ computing strategy, many people use it at their jobs each day. It has a lot of features not found on any other PC operating system, and more are added regularly. Today, we take a look at four features of Windows 10 that we think can really help your business.

Unpin from Start
Open your Start menu and prepare to be inundated with applications you NEVER use. If this is you, you can get rid of a lot of the stuff that only serves to distract you or your staff. All of these apps can be removed from your Start menu, and many can be uninstalled completely.

By right-clicking on the live tiles on your Start menu, you will be given several options. Two of those include, Uninstall and Unpin from Start. When going through these apps, you’ll find that some of the applications on the Start menu can’t be completely uninstalled, but they can all be removed.

If you aren’t much of a typist, you can dictate your text to your machine through the use of a microphone. This feature works in many applications, and within the OS itself. To turn this feature on, access the Settings menu and click on Time & Language > Speech > Related settings. Once there, you will look for Speech, inking and typing privacy settings. Simply toggle the speech settings on.

To utilize the integration, you’ll need to activate Cortana’s listening feature. Do this by pressing Windows Key + H whenever your cursor is in a text box.

Focus Assist
Focus can be fleeting as there are a litany of distractions that could keep you from being as productive as you need to be. Windows 10’s Focus Assist feature can turn your notifications off (based on priority). By going to Settings > System > Focus Assist, you can set automatic rules based on time, location, activity, and receive a summary of the notifications you’ve received when you toggle Focus Assist off.

Cortana, Decision-Maker
If you are the indecisive type, you may be wasting time thinking through inconsequential questions. Cortana has a quirky feature that has her flip a proverbial coin. Just type (or say) into Cortana “flip a coin”. This feature makes the decisions for you.

A lot of Windows 10 is built with the user in mind. It can assist with everything from productivity to simple decision-making. What other features do you use in Windows 10? Leave them in the comments section below.
