Windows 10: Windows 10 Hot Corners

    Windows 10 Hot Corners

    Why oah why don't we have hot corners in Windows 10? My Apple and Linux systems have had this for almost 10 years. For multitasking you throw your mouse in the corner and all your sessions are displayed in front of you. They are shown as large windows you can easily pick to rapidly move from one program to the next. On Apple it's called Expose and on Linux it's called Compiz.

    I just finished upgrading and still on Win10 I have to go to the taskbar, pick some tiny icon of firefox, wait for it to display my open sessions, then pick another tiny session square, then I get to my program. The is clunky and cumbersome and slow. Steve Jobs was right when he said Windows designer just don't have any class. Hunting for the "task view" to accomplish this same feat is nowhere near as fast and elegant as a hot corner either.

    If you think a hot corner is too sensitive and too easily activated you're too sloppy with your mouse. I've been using them forever with no issues.

    And Alt-Winkey for the virtual desktops. Windows had always been more about shortcut keys.

    On the other hand the OP might want to think about getting a Mac. I like my MacBook Pro quite a bit.
