60 TOP TIMESAVING TIPS & TRICKS
Nick Peers collates no less than 60 tips, tricks and shortcuts to help Windows perform more efficiently
One of the biggest bottlenecks holding back any PC is the person sat right in front of it. In a perfect world we’d all use our machines as efficiently as possible, learning best-practice techniques from the get-go, while avoiding bad habits.
But, we’re human, and the irony is that we make compromises in the short term to make things easier only for them to have the opposite effect in the longer term. But who wants to relearn everything from scratch? Instead, why not make one more compromise – one that will actually have benefits for you in the long as well as the short term?
That compromise is to work your way through the tips in this feature – you’ll find 60 in the main copy, plus 40 additional shortcuts – and discover the tricks and techniques you need to successfully reduce the amount of time you spend carrying out specific tasks on your PC.
You’ll find we’ve split things into four key sections: navigating the Windows desktop; mastering File Explorer; delving deep into your system; plus a collection of other tips and tools.
By the time you’ve reached the end of the feature, you will have hopefully discovered dozens of ways to speed up the way you use your PC – things that will free up your time so you can focus on the stuff you really bought your PC for – like staying in touch, streaming media or even researching your family tree. Let’s get started, shall we?
