Top Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts

The key combinations you need to know to navigate Windows 10 like a pro.

Windows 10 is available and as with any OS if you want to get the most out of it you need to know a few keyboard shortcuts.

Most of the operating system's handiest features, like being able to snap four windows together or open virtual desktops to create more screen space, are accessible using only keys.

Even Cortana, Windows 10's virtual assistant, can be summoned with some two fingered wizardry.

Microsoft has also carried over shortcuts from previous versions of Windows, preserving the ability to quickly navigate through folders and apps without your hands leaving the keyboard.

Here are the Windows 10 shortcuts that will make your life easier, both the new entries and old favourites from earlier iterations of the OS.
