Windows 10 Multitasking - Settings Option

The Windows 10 System Settings option for "Multitasking" is where you can control the display of windows on your home screen via the "Snap" setting. Also, if you decide to set up a "virtualized" desktop, then you can do that through this Settings option.

Notifications and Actions is the section of Settings where you customize exactly what you want Windows 10 to notify you about - in both general and specific ways. 

Windows 10 Apps and Features

Windows 10 Apps and Features is the newer version of the former Windows Programs and Features. Here, you have the option of displaying just a few apps on your machine as opposed to all (when you used to work with Programs and Features in Windows 7 and Windows 8).

Windows 10 Productivity Guide - PDF

When the Windows 10 Productivity Guide is finally ready to be released to the public in paperback and ePub formats, I will be preparing a promotional release in PDF that will feature the first three sections (e.g. Chapters) of the book. So, you will get a chance to sample my writing and approach to the Windows 10 Operating System as a Technical Writer. Will keep you all posted.

Three Ways to Use Cortana

Cortana - the new Virtual Assistant in Microsoft Windows 10 can help you do many great things.

Here are three things I now do on a regular basis via Cortana.

1. Open Apps in the Start Menu

2. Search for Files and Folders in the File Manager

3. Open Edge and go to a certain website like Google or Bing.

Windows 10 Productivity Guide - To Be Edited Soon

Dear Friends and Visitors:

My latest book the Windows 10 Productivity Guide is nearing completion and soon I will be in "editor" mode here to review the manuscript and make sure it is not only presentable but also understandable and timely (up-to-date). In the world of Information Technology (IT), things change fast and so I want to make sure that the book is truly up-to-date and informative for all readers.

I will keep you all posted and as soon as I know when I will be publishing and launching the book, I will let you all know via this blog or my tech writing blog

All The Best,

Windows 10 Productivity Tips

Dear Friends and Visitors: I am currently completing the manuscript for a new book that will be called "The Windows 10 Productivity Guide". I have written about 220 pages of a 240 page manuscript and the book will be featuring four major areas: Installation/Activation of Windows 10, Navigation, Apps, and Settings (which covers Security). Just as a "teaser" for the book, here are three ways Windows 10 can help become more productive:

1. Cortana (the new Digital Assistant) can help you with many tasks - like locating and tracking a package your bought and seeing where it is now.

2. Start Menu is easy to use and features both Apps and Tiles for each navigation.

3. Settings is a new digital format for Control Panel (from Windows 7 and 8) and you can customize your Windows 10 experience easily through the Settings options. 

Will keep you all posted as the book nears completion.

Best Regards, Keith
