How to Share (Or Not Share) Your Wi-Fi in Windows 10.

If you want to give the impression that you’ve been using Windows 10 for years, learning a few keyboard shortcuts is the best way to go about it—you can navigate around the interface, get apps in position, trigger events, change settings and more with a couple of taps on your keyboard. Windows 10 is finally here, bringing the familiar desktop back to the forefront and introducing new treats like Cortana, the virtual assistant, and Edge, the browser that will finally erase those bad memories of Internet Explorer.If you’re a productivity worker who doesn’t like to take their hands off the keyboard, no worries: Windows 10 has your back with some truly useful keyboard shortcuts that will help you manage and navigate between open applications and windows, and even virtual desktops, with ease.

App windows can be snapped to either side of the screen, as in Windows 8, but you can also assign them to quadrants and get four windows open on screen simultaneously. Bonus: Whenever you snap a window to a side or a quadrant, Windows will automatically suggest you pick one of your open apps to fill the remaining real estate on your desktop.

Official support for virtual desktops is one of the most exciting new additions in Windows 10—unless you’ve been developing a third-party utility to do the same job! Once it’s running, you’ll have the option to hide or show hidden updates. “Hide updates” is Microsoft’s polite way of saying “stop these crazy updates!” so you’ll want to click that.

Windows Key+X — open the Start button context menu (the one with easy access to a host of common computer management features—like the Command Prompt below). To uninstall updates go to the search bar in the bottom left corner and type “view installed updates.” This will bring up a control panel, and once you have located the update, select it and choose uninstall. From there, you can either reserve an upgrade (Windows 10 will roll out over the next few weeks, so not everyone can get it day one), or go ahead and schedule an install if your device already qualifies. Then, use the arrow keys and SPACE to select one and bring it front and center. (Task View also provides an interface for creating and managing virtual desktops.

Besides all the new Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts, there are plenty of old classics that have survived successive versions of the operating system and are still going strong. And maybe most importantly, remember that the free upgrade offer only lasts a year; if you wait until July 30 of 2016, you’re going to have to pay up.
