Windows 8.1 tips and tricks

Windows 8.1 is not just about new features and improvements. It also has some hidden tricks and shortcuts that can make your life easier and more productive. Here are some of the best ones you should know:

Press the Windows key to enter the tiled Start screen. The Windows key + M minimizes everything that's showing on the desktop. The Windows key + E opens Explorer for quick access to folders. On the Start screen, press the Windows key + D to instantly get back to the desktop.

If you have a touch screen, you can use gestures to navigate Windows 8.1. Swipe in from the right edge to open the Charms bar, where you can access settings, search, share and more. Swipe in from the left edge to switch between open apps. Swipe in from the top or bottom edge to reveal app commands. Pinch to zoom in or out of a web page, map or picture.

You can customize the Start screen to suit your preferences. You can change the background color and pattern, as well as the size and position of the tiles. To do this, open the Settings charm and choose 'Personalize'. You can also group tiles together by dragging them to an empty space on the Start screen, then zoom out and name the group.

You can snap two apps side by side on the same screen, which is useful for multitasking. To do this, drag an app from the top edge to the left or right edge of the screen, then choose another app from the list that appears. You can adjust the size of each app by dragging the divider between them.

You can use SkyDrive to sync your files and settings across your devices. SkyDrive is a cloud storage service that gives you 7 GB of free space online. You can access your files from any web browser, or from any Windows 8.1 device that's signed in with your Microsoft account. You can also choose which settings to sync, such as your wallpaper, passwords, language preferences and more. aa16f39245
