THE TASKBAR IS AN ES­SEN­TIAL PART OF WIN­DOWS 10, BUT ARE YOU US­ING IT TO ITS MAX­I­MUM PO­TEN­TIAL?

TechLife Australia - - WELCOME - [ MATT HAN­SON ]

THE TASKBAR – that long menu that runs along the bot­tom of your screen and holds var­i­ous icons, the search bar and Start menu – as been an im­por­tant part of Win­dows since all the way back to Win­dows 95. There was even a very early ver­sion of it in­cluded in Win­dows 1.0 in 1985! It’s prob­a­bly one of the most-used parts of the Win­dows in­ter­face, since it con­tains some use­ful fea­tures such as the no­ti­fi­ca­tion area. But, did you know that there’s a lot more you can do with it? If you just use it for quickly jump­ing be­tween apps or launch­ing the Start menu, then you’re not us­ing it to its full po­ten­tial. In this Taskbar mas­ter­class, we’ll show you some of the bril­liant hid­den things the Taskbar can do. You’ll learn how to cus­tomise the Taskbar to suit your spe­cific needs, and high­light handy short­cuts that will make us­ing Win­dows 10 eas­ier than ever.
