It is the best feature of Windows 10 which is being used in way that I don’t know but I’m using it. HAHA! yeah that’s kinda confusing but quick access feature of Windows 10 is really amazing.

2. Create Multiple Desktops

In this Windows 10, we have seen many new stuff coming in our way and we are impressed to use its great features so far. Yet, what I like the most is i.e., you can create multiple desktops, let’s say virtual desktops. 🙂

Windows 10 does have ability to purely handle the virtual desktops hassle free which we thing is a good step ahead, while other big operating systems in the market do have virtual desktops capability for a very long time ago i.e., Mac OS X and Linux. Using this, you are able to setup multiple tasks separately so you don’t screw up between your work, fun and research 😛

Like you can setup virtual desktop to have fun online on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google+, etc and do the work on another desktop and web browsing (research) will took place in a completely separately so you don’t mess with all.

If you want to see and get started, you have to click on the Task View icon on the taskbar, or hold down the Windows key and Tab.

3. Cortana Artificial Intelligence of Windows 10

Cortana is artificial intelligence of Windows 10 which helps you to find to search and control easily. When you click on search pane from the taskbar that says “Search the web and Windows” when you start searching for something it will allow you to search from My Document and from Web fast and easily.

4. Task switcher

Task switcher is really good feature from where you can just go ahead and do multi-tasking easily and even you have open to create a complete new desktop. We have already discussed about creating multiple desktops in Windows 10 in this article.

To see task switcher in action, press Windows key + Tab key from keyboard. We have found many newbie Windows users don’t know the short keys like Alt-Tab keyboard combination to see and switch between all running apps on running desktop of Windows 10. This redesigned task switcher shows the running tasks with their corresponding thumbnails which makes it so useful.

5. Snap Assist

We had a really good feature about splitting the desktop in 2 by simply dragging the running document to the left and to right that’s makes you manage multi-tasking easily. However, in Windows 10 you can split the desktop into 4 corners 🙂 and can monitor the running apps from store on the other hand as well… So, now you can use all four corners of your desktop screen to work fast instead of half..

6. New Notifications (Action Bar)

You can have a good notification icon beside time and date on which you can click to view the notifications about updates, security maintenance & other running apps from top to bottom. On action bar, you can also see icons for Wi-Fi, battery, VPN (Android VPN apps), airplane mode, location, all settings and more, so we can enable/disable directly faster without wasting time in locating them.

7. The new Edge browser

Windows 10 comes with all new version of Internet Explorer by rename it to ‘EDGE Browser’ in order to catch up with already popular fast running internet browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox of course. Edge browser works with all modern web languages like HTML5, CSS3 and more…

Note: All websites that doesn’t work properly in old internet explorer, should work on EDGE browser now.

8.  Command Prompt (cmd, IMPROVED)

We all know that we stuck in the same experience from 1990’s in using command prompt cmd but not anymore because in Windows 10 you can now resize the window of command prompt and use familiar keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste at the command prompt. So, far these are the good improvement rather than frustrating with the same experience as we used to in 1990’s…
