Accessibility and Settings Tricks 0n Windows 8-10

Accessibility tricks in Windows are easy ways of navigating to some settings on windows 8 or 10. Quick navigation ensures faster access to some features, or settings available in the power of using a Windows PC. We are here to make sure you enjoy your PC in full without running into troubles, and in a quick way. Windows have integrated more tricks to aid navigation access, even adding more language in Windows 10.

1. Drag Windows To Pin: Drag open windows either to left, or right to re-size the window. The window occupies half of the screen in either side which you drag it to. This can be useful in comparisons between folders, or to make a split screen between two running applications. Dragging an open window to the top of the screen automatically makes the window occupy full screen.

2. Shake A Window: Shaking a window will keep it active and minimize others. Grab a window and shake vigorously. This keeps it active and minimizes all others to the taskbar. Repeat this process to maximize all the minimized windows or running applications. This is useful when you have many open windows and need only one active.  Remember, use Windows key + M (keyboard shortcut) to minimize all open windows.

3. Right-Click on the Taskbar: Taskbar is located at the bottom of the screen. It has a separate color scheme different from the main running applications. Right-clicking displays available options. Access your running applications by right-clicking and going to Task Manager. Also, right-click on the taskbar, and click on properties to access other customizing options.

4. Right-Click on Tiles: Tiles are start menu programs that appear as boxes. Right click on tiles to see options like the ability to unpin from the Start menu, resize the windows, or to turn that live tile off.

5. Quick Settings Accessibility: Major windows settings are easily accessible with a right-click function. Right, click on Windows icon at the bottom left to quickly access major options. This feature is available for Windows 8 and above users. Settings like Program and features, Run command, Computer, and Disk management, etc are seen here.

6. Show Desktop: Easily preview your wallpaper on the desktop by taking your mouse to the bottom-right corner of your screen. This previews your screen saver. You can customize the action by right-clicking at the bottom right of the desktop.

7. Rotate Your Screen: Rotate your screen by simultaneously pressing Ctrl + Alt + D and any of the arrow buttons. The down arrow will flip it upside down, the left or right arrow buttons will turn it 90 degrees on its side, and the up arrow will bring you back to standard orientation. This may not be useful and may scare users.

8. Enable ‘God Mode’: God mode shows all available options and settings on one page. This is useful when you have many settings to run. Proceed by: Right-click on the desktop > New > Folder. Re-name the new folder with this bit of code:
GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}. OR simply create a new folder with the above name. Then save and double-click to open the God Mode.

Life is Beautiful, Enjoy it while it last. The clock continues to tick, one day we will close our eyes and nothing (nothing!) will matter any more.
