How many of you love shortcuts. Here are a few shortcuts that you weren't using in your PC, are you ready! Let's get started:

Struggling with several tasks, but don't want to waste your time on opening other tabs or windows? So what about a new clean desktop! To create, do as follows-

PRESS WINDOWS KEY + CTRL + D(PC) / CONTROL + UP(MAC)


2: SWITCH BETWEEN VIRTUAL WINDOWS


By doing as per the 1st method you will switch to a new clean desktop, but what about going back to your previous desktop? To get it back do as follows-

PRESS WINDOWS KEY + CTRL(PC)/ CONTROL KEY(MAC)

You can switch between both the desktops by using the left and right arrow keys.

NOTE: When you are done with the 2nd task and sure you no longer need that desktop, you can close it by doing this-

PRESS WINDOWS KEY + CTRL + F4(PC)/ OPTION KEY + X(MAC)


3: SPLIT-SCREEN BETWEEN 2 APPS


Do you want to split-screen, so you can use two apps in your PC together, so here is the way-

First Open the app that you need for your work and

PRESS WINDOWS KEY + LEFT ARROW

Then open another app and

PRESS WINDOWS KEY + RIGHT ARROW


Now you will find that 2 windows are sharing your screen!

This is very important-

Did your program ever got stuck and ain't processing, to avoid restarting your device and losing all your progress,

Here is a method-

PRESS CTRL + SHIFT + ESC(PC)/ COMMAND + OPTION + ESCAPE(MAC)

It will open the task manager which will help you quit any malfunctioning app or stop the ones that aren't responding.

It will prevent you from losing all your progress due to just one malfunctioning app.
