Hey, welcome back to another Windows 10 Shots blog post. I hope you read my last post, Windows 10 Shots – Virtual Desktop Keyboard Shortcuts.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, with most shots after about a handful things will start to get a little hazy. But, with Windows 10 Shots (this new series of posts), the hope would be that the opposite would happen. That clarity and insight into the highly anticipated release would free your mind to great new features and power of Windows 10.
I have worked with a lot of Windows users over the years, and one thing I have noticed is that there are users who love to use the mouse and there are users who love to use the keyboard. Sure there are those in the middle, and I actually prefer to use the mouse most of the time, but you have to admit, when you watch someone who has the keyboard down to a science, windows, screens, emails, etc. are flashing all over the screen like a firework show. It can be confusing to those watching, but for the person who has become proficient with the keyboard, productivity is the name of the game.
This is the third post in a series dedicated to those who love to wield the keyboard like a sword and chop up all work or play tasks that dare to stand in their way.
This post will focus on a new feature in Windows 10, Cortana, your new digital assistant. While current and future posts will include the following:
- General Windows 10
- Virtual Desktops
- Microsoft Edge (The Windows 10 magical internet surfing application)
- Game Bar
I will attempt to keep this short by explaining as quickly as I can: the Cortana keyboard shortcuts we are going to use, what it does and a quick description with an occasional screen shot to drive it home. That being said, the General Window 10 and Microsoft Edge posts will have more content. So, let’s get started on some Cortana keyboard shortcuts.
