4 Windows 10 Screens

Windows 10 Hands On

If you are a hectic multitasker, one window is just not enough to get your work done. I used to use two by clicking and dragging to the end of the left and right of the screen, but Windows 10 allows you to have 4 windows open at the same time. These will be automatically resized for you too.

Drag your open window to the top left of the screen, then follow the same steps with your other open windows, but just using the other corners of the screen, this will allow you to have 4 open windows, perfectly sized and placed on your screen.

Make use of the virtual desktops

Windows 10 Task View

You can now spread your work across multiple desktops on Windows 10. You can also open windows across these virtual desktops and they will not interfere with your other desktops that you have running.

Click on the Task View button at the bottom of the taskbar, and click on the “+” button to create a new desktop. Click and drag open windows into your desktops to arrange them accordingly.

Switch to Tablet ModeWindows 10 Tablet Mode

Instead of forcing a tablet-designed Windows down our throat like Windows 8, Windows 10 allows you to switch between the dedicated tablet mode, and a fully fledged desktop Windows 10.

The modes look and feel the same, but one is more mouse and keyboard based, and the other is more touch screen based. Switching between them when using a tablet device, and a PC will make your life easier

Click on the notifications icon at the bottom right hand of the screen, and select Tablet Mode to enable the tablet version of Windows 10.
