You know about the Start menu in Windows 10. (Yes, it’s back, thank goodness.) But did you know about the secret Start menu?
If you right-click the Start button, you get this: Direct access to some of the most useful parts of Windows — like Control Panel, File Explorer, Search, and Task Manager. No more swiping, tapping, and searching for the stuff you really need.
If you’ve got a touchscreen device, you can get the same effect by simply touching the Start Menu icon and holding your finger on it for a full second, then releasing it.
By the way, Windows key+X is the keystroke for that.
Windows Key-X. That’s about as secret as it gets!
