System hacks: change the way to control Windows 10 efficiently

Although Windows 10 has provided us with a new system operation experience, if you want to use a more efficient way of operation, you can also change the way or customize yourself to get a different and personalized efficient operation experience.

1. Change the way you operate the window interface to suit your environment

Windows 10’s new Settings screen on the PC follows the traditional multi-column menu model used on PCs. If you maximize the Settings window or set its width to a certain value (depending on the resolution of your monitor), the settings items will be arranged in three columns. Take the “Sound” settings as an example, the layout is as shown (Figure 1).


For using a large size and high resolution monitor, such a bureau can achieve a clear view of the setting items. However, if you use an old computer monitor with very small resolution or a small resolution low-grade flat panel display, the window may not be fully displayed if you continue to use this mode. In this case, you can reduce the width of the window infinitely until it can no longer be reduced, and the original three columns will be automatically merged into one column. Taking the “Sound” setting as an example, the left-hand directory list will no longer exist, leaving only the contents of the other two columns. In fact, the original left-hand directory is automatically reorganized into a parent menu, which can be switched to by the small arrow in the upper left corner of the window (Figure 2).


The visual controls of the traditional Control Panel can also be set up in this way. Simply change the viewing method from “Categories” to “Small Icons” when you enter the Control Panel, and then you can view all Control Panel options in a streamlined mode (Figure 3).


2. Change the way to achieve efficient control of system functions

Some of the traditional system controls in Windows 10 are more secretive. For accessing system functions, you can also use a faster way. Some control functions that are usually hard to find can be integrated into the desktop right-click menu to achieve right-click one-click invocation. To integrate system functions into the desktop right-click menu, you can borrow the software Right-Click Extender to complete, just select the Desktop button in the main interface of the software, and then pick the control items to be displayed in the desktop right-click menu.


In addition, we can place all system controls in the “Quick Access” menu. First, create a folder named “Control Panel. {ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}” folder anywhere on the disk, and then fix the folder to “Quick Access” with a right-click command to retrieve any system control item through the Quick Access menu (Figure 4 ).
