That can really make a difference for you. Some of these are new. Some have been there for a while, but they’re a bit hidden, let’s take a look number one multitasking in edge. Most of us have multiple applications open at the same time when we’re working now the fastest way in windows to switch between these apps is to use the shortcut alt tab. But this handy shortcut only worked for apps now for the many tabs we usually have open in our internet browser that’s changed now when you press alt tab with edge open you’ll, see your browser tabs right alongside your other apps in the task switcher. So these three tabs are tabs. I have open in edge and these two are other apps that’s, so convenient, because this way i can quickly jump to a specific tab in edge. There are also some settings to customize your experience. Click on windows start button settings. Then click on system and select multitasking with this setting right here, you can choose whether to show all or to only show your last three or five browser tabs so that you don’t overload the task switcher with the last option: open windows only you can turn off This feature in case you can’t, get used to it, but i’m pretty sure you’ll love. It number two turn on the turbo. Now not many know of this windows. 10 has a performance mode that you can turn on to make sure that your hardware is running at peak performance.

This is windows ludicrous mode, but most people will actually never see it because it’s only enabled by default for workstations. So let me show you how you can enable it. Click on the windows start button and select settings, then click on system and then power and sleep on the right here. You’Ll see additional power settings which will take you to the power options. Usually you’ll see these power plans balanced power, saver and high performance. The one we’re looking for is not here so let’s activate it click on the windows start button and type in command prompt, then type in this command. Now i put the command in the description of the video so just copy it from there then hit enter and that’s it let’s close the window and go back to the power and sleep and to the additional power settings, and now we can enable the ultimate performance Plan, this mode will essentially disable all power savings features in exchange for best possible performance. Now i don’t recommend using this all the time, because it will prioritize performance over energy efficiency, but for projects when you want to use the additional juice it may come in handy and you can always change back to the balance plan. Afterwards. Number three clean up the clutter next tip is about freeing space on your hard drive. Now with a windows feature called storage sense, you can automatically get rid of temporary or unnecessary files. Now, what i especially like about it is that it also works with one drive.

So it looks through your locally available files in one drive and moves them to online. Only if you haven’t opened them for a certain time frame. This way you can release a lot of space locally, while your files are safe in the cloud. Let me show you click the windows, button and type in storage settings up here. You can turn on storage sense. Then you can configure it to your needs. Per default. Storage sense only runs if you’re low on disk space. I recommend changing this to run at least every month. Then you decide how to handle temporary files. I usually have this option checked and i also delete files in the recycle bin after 30 days. The downloads folder is not turned on by default. It’S. Up to you, you can change it, but i’m sometimes slow to move stuff around from there. So i generally have it on never down here under locally available cloud content. You can free up space by moving your files to just online and not local, on your device. You’Ll see the list of your sharepoint and onedrive folders that your pc is linked to. When you click on the drop down, you can select a time interval, for example, with 14 days. It would move files that you didn’t open for the last 14 days to online. Only this means they’re still available to you. You can see them on your drive. You can double click any time and open these, but they don’t take up any space when you’re done click clean now and let windows clean up the clutter for you number four, the your phone app.

This app has been around for a while, but not many know of it. It lets you use your phone without touching it. For example, you can read and send text messages from the comfort of your pc or send messages with whatsapp or any other messaging app, which is a productivity boost for me, because i’m much faster typing on the keyboard than with my thumbs with the app you also Get instant access to your photos, you can just drag and drop them into other office apps and start using them in, for example, powerpoint, ward or onenote. You essentially get access to all of your apps on your phone plus. You can make and receive calls on your pc at the moment, it’s exclusive to samsung devices, but hopefully microsoft is going to make this available to other android devices. Now i have a separate video about the your phone app check it out. If you want to find out more about it, i’ll put the link in the description below number five turn off background. Apps each app that’s running in the background is draining your battery and making your computer slower. The background apps can continue to perform actions. Even when you don’t have them open, it may make sense for some apps to update, in the background, like your email and your calendar or the weather app, but for most of them, it’s not necessary and just to be clear, preventing an app from running.

In the background, doesn’t mean you can’t use it. It just means it won’t be running in the background when you’re not using it to change the settings, click on the start, button go to settings, select privacy and then scroll down to background apps. You can either turn off background apps completely up here or you can scroll down the list of apps and disable each depending on what you want, and while we’re in here also check out all the other privacy settings you have under apps and windows. Permissions, for example, which apps can access your camera, your microphone and so on or in activity. History double check your options about what’s, being recorded and shared with microsoft regarding your usage of apps and services, just go through and think about which data you want to share and which permissions you want to give to apps, because most of it is going to be Turned on by default, which may not be in your interest.
