Work With Multiple Desktops

The virtual desktops feature in Windows 10 is called “Task View” and is located on the Task bar. Windows 10 was built to be a touch-friendly operating system, but Microsoft isn’t slacking on keyboard and mouse support. Windows-Tab launches the Task View tool, which displays all your open windows at once and reveals the New Desktop option in the lower right-hand corner.

Yep, Windows finally has a virtual desktop interface (VDI), but it’s fairly basic. Unlike OS X and Linux
you can’t use them to organize different sets of application shortcuts, folders, or files. You can’t apply wallpaper or color schemes that are unique to each VDI. In Windows 10, any of those things that you apply to your “real” desktop is mirrored across all the VDIs that you have created. Still, it’s a good start. Read More 

Hidden Dark Theme

Windows 10’s new default theme is very bright, with lots of white — from window backgrounds to white title bars. Microsoft built a dark, black theme into Windows 10, but it’s hidden.

Windows 10 comes with lots of personalization options and by some small tweaks you can make it more familiar to yourself. Microsoft may eventually add a toggle to the Settings app that switches between a system-wide light theme and dark theme. This is the way it works on Windows Phone. For now, you can still enable a system-wide dark theme — it just requires editing the registry.Read More

You can also access shortcuts to your PC Settings. The Action Center can be accessed through the bubble talk icon at the bottom right side of the Taskbar.

Improved Hyper-V Feature

Windows 10 includes a number of improved features including updates to Hyper-V virtualization. Virtualization is the creation of a virtual (rather than physical) version of an IT environment, including an operating system (OS), a storage device, etc.

Virtualization takes place on the same hardware platform after installing specific software – known as a hypervisor.

Change The Login Screen Background In Windows 10

Windows 10 has a lock screen and a login screen. The login screen is the one you see when you hit Escape on the lock screen and where you enter your password to get to your desktop. Windows 10 has made it super easy to change the lock screen background but the same cannot be said for the Login screen. At present, you are saddled with the Hero background on the login screen and there doesn’t seem to be any straight forward way to change it.

There is, however, an app Windows 10 Login Screen Background Changer‘ that does let you change it. It’s free and warns you to use it at your own risk (and we agree).
