About Windows 10 – Tricks and tips:

1. Cortana

So the much awaited electronic assistant Cortana which is a competitor to Siri (iPhone) has launched in Windows. Its available in windows 10! Although it is not available in India but still you can access it. All you have to do is Change your PC language, Region and Speech language to US (English) and after that you can use Cortana! Cortana is much advanced and can do many tasks! But the only drawback is that it requires working net connection otherwise it won’t function. You can perform many tasks like Ask her to read out a story for you, search some on the internet, open an application for you, add a reminder or an Alarm! It can perform many tasks and all you have to do is just sit back and give her orders!

2. Screenshots and Screenrecord

Yes, Microsoft has added one more feature in Windows 10 and that is if you want to take a screenshot then you only need to press Windows Key + Print Screen key and it will take screenshot without any additional software or anything! And you can record screen only when you’re playing a game for doing that while playing game just press Windows key + G and Game DVR option will come and from there you can record screen!

3. Start menu

One of the things that I most liked about Windows 10 is its Start menu. Its fully customisable. Many people didn’t like the full screen start menu of Windows 8 so Microsoft gave an option for that, you can choose whether start menu displays in Full screen or not.
Another thing what I liked about start menu is that it is very simple and sober! It has live tiles which are also customisable. You can add and remove tiles from there.

This option allows you to sync your phone with the Windows 10. And if you own a Windows Phone then you can sync almost all of your phone with windows like you an sync your documents, Music, Settings, Themes and even Cortana.
