Here are some simplified Windows tips for new employees:

  1. Customize your Start menu: You can make the Start menu look and feel the way you want by resizing it, pinning or unpinning apps, and adding live tiles.
  2. Use the Task Manager: The Task Manager allows you to view and manage all the processes running on your system; you can use it to close apps that are not responding and view system performance.
  3. Learn some keyboard shortcuts: Windows has a variety of keyboard shortcuts that can help you navigate your system more quickly and easily, such as “Win + E” to open File Explorer, “Win + D” to show the desktop, and “Win + L” to lock your computer.
  4. Snap windows: The Snap feature allows you to organize your open windows by snapping them to the left or right side of the screen, enabling you to have two windows open side by side and compare them easily.
  5. File History: File History is a feature that automatically backs up your files and folders to an external hard drive; this way, you can restore them if you accidentally delete them.
  6. Cortana: Cortana is Windows’ built-in digital assistant that can help you with tasks such as setting reminders, making phone calls, and even booking a reservation.
  7. Command Prompt: Command Prompt is a powerful tool that allows you to perform advanced tasks on your computer; you can run scripts, troubleshoot problems, and automate tasks.
