To get the most out of your Windows 10 workstation, try these five useful time-saving tips.

Shake to Minimize Open Windows

Too many windows open at once can distract you from the task at hand. Windows 10 allows you to use your mouse or finger to easily minimize open windows. All you have to do is click and drag, or even just shake the window a bit.

Sync Specific Folders with OneDrive

OneDrive’s cloud storage gives you the flexibility to sync your local folders directly to your OneDrive data for easy access. With OneDrive open, right-click on the OneDrive icon in the notification area.

Open Settings and go to the Account tab. Select Choose folders to show a list of your OneDrive folders, then select the ones you want to access through your Windows 10 File Explorer and click OK.

View the Original Control Panel

It’s easier to customize your options via Settings, but if you’re one of those people who prefer the old style of Control Panel, just click on the Cortana icon in the taskbar and type “Control Panel”.

Choose Folders Displayed on Start Menu

The Start menu is Windows 10’s big productivity hub, and it can be a little cluttered. Clear it up by choosing which folders you want to see on your Start menu. Open Settings, select Personalization and then click Start. You can then find a link for Choose which folders appear on Start at the bottom of the window. Toggle the folders to your preference.

Select Your Application Notifications

Notification overload can be a pain, so it’s nice to be able to customize our notifications in Windows 10. Open Settings, go to System, click on Notifications & action. You can then choose the notifications you want to see.
