WIN­DOWS HAS GROWN into a com­pli­cated beast, with a lot go­ing on at once, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be fast and pro­duc­tive. There are a lot of time-sav­ing short­cuts baked in to speed up your work, and even if you’re just mov­ing files about, you’ll find some­thing to shave a few sec­onds off.

There are lots of tips for clear­ing out the cruft and con­cen­trat­ing on what you’re meant to be do­ing. Here, we’ve col­lected to­gether some of the best, in­clud­ing speedy key­board short­cuts, rapid cur­rency con­ver­sion, or­gan­i­sa­tion on the dou­ble and a du­bi­ous Registry hack that will speed up your emoji use.

Win­dows was al­ways meant to be pro­duc­tive, and while its bells and whis­tles can some­times get in the way, at heart, it’s a good work­ing en­vi­ron­ment that just needs a few tweaks to make it into a great one.
