Windows 10 is packed full of plenty of cool features, and be it point and click or touch gestures, there no doubt is more than one way to access them all. One good way to save time during your busy day, however, is to use keyboard shortcuts, as Microsoft points out in a new post.

First on the list are a few keyboard shortcuts which will help you manage your Windows. For those times when you want to go incognito, you can minimize your open windows with Windows Key and M.  And, for when you want to multitask, you also can snap Windows side by side by pressing the Windows Key, and the appropriate arrow key. For even more multitasking, you even can use Windows Key and Up Arrow to snap a third window!
