    Windows 10: Tips, Tricks, and Tweaks


    Last Updated: 20 Mar 2015 at 23:59
    Despite still being very much an early preview, Windows 10 is already
    brimming with handy new featues, along with new tweaks and tricks—and, because the operating is still in preview, a handful of those tricks unlock powerful functionality hidden to everyday users.
    Others, though, simply let you mold some of Windows 10’s new features into the shape you see fit. Here are some of the most useful Windows 10 tweaks, tricks, and tips we’ve found. Be warned: Some of these may break as the operating system evolves, though we plan to update this article over time. Got any tricks of your own? Share them in the comments!

    Seems the Media Console, activated by keyboard controls and shows in the upper left of your screen, will host 3 sources: Windows Media Player, Music App and Sound Recorder and is switchable with the 'light' bar on the right of the console.

    if you toggle the 'OpenAtLogon' entry to 1 you'll boot straight to the Start Menu/Screen and it also adds an option to Taskbar Properties Menu automatically.
