                               Top 5 Windows 11 Tips and Tricks

The top 05 windows 11 tips and tricks with the release of Windows 11. A bunch of new features is available. Here are the top 05 including both tips and tricks to maximize your use of windows 11.

                                       1. Enable Hdr :

Number ones enable hdr. Hdr stands for high dynamic range and it’s a setting for your graphics card and monitor that allows you to see better clarity and better lighting. Microsoft enabled this feature in windows 10 but improved it dramatically for windows 11. To turn it on go down to your start button. Into settings, under system select display, select the monitor.

You want to enable her and you’ll have an option down here in the menu to use hdr. If this option is not available then it just means your equipment’s not capable of running hdr. You have to have a monitor and a graphics card both capable of hdr. If you have the right equipment you can turn this on right here. You should immediately see some differences with your display. After turning that setting on there are additional settings here at the right arrow including this option?

To play streaming hdr video now I won’t turn that on because mine does not work well, with that it’s not a good hdr monitor. However, you can turn this on to improve the streaming of your videos especially when it comes to gaming. If you’ve tried setting the hdr in windows 10 but haven’t been happy with the results. Try this again in windows 11 because Microsoft made changes to improve the gaming experience with hdr and it may work better for you this time around.

                                     2. Video Capture Fix :

Number two is the video capture fix. Have you ever noticed that if you bring up a video on your browser and then you try to do a copy of that image whether you’re recording it or whether you’re doing just a snapshot it comes up blank?

For Example :

I have the snipping tool and when I hit new to copy this image and then I select an area I want to copy.

It comes up blank. There is a simple solution to fix this problem. Go up into the settings for your browser. Click on system and where it says use hardware acceleration. When available turn that off and restarts your browser. Now when we do a snipping tool copy it, lets us capture that image and it shows up in the copy. The same thing’s true when you’re recording full video, so if you have trouble recording those images make sure to change that setting,

                                     3. Personalized :

Number three is personalized. Start folders, when you click on start all there is down here at the bottom is the power button but you can customize that click on settings. Go to personalization. Click on start and select folders here. You can enable different options that you want to show up on your start menu. Let’s turn on settings file explorer, documents, downloads, and networking. Now when I go to the start I see the icons for the settings.

                                    4. Multiple Desktops :

Number four is multiple desktops. Microsoft added multiple desktops to the taskbar in Windows 11. Here you can just click plus to add a new desktop and now each of these desktops can be independently used with the various apps that you install in each one. So let’s say we open up the file explorer and calculator on our second desktop. I can go back to my first desktop and let’s open up a browser. Now when I click on these multiple desktop options I can see I have desktop 1 and desktop 2 and I can see the apps running in each. If you right-click on any one of these, you can choose to move it to a different desktop or a new one.

You can also right-click and rename these and you can right-click and choose a background for each one of those desktops. If you choose to close one of these desktops all it does is it moves those applications over to the previous desktop on the left. It doesn’t close all those apps and now you can see they’re all back on the desktop. Number one another nice feature of the multiple desktops is if you’re using a tablet device where you have a touchpad. You can use four fingers to swipe across your touchpad to switch between your different desktops and there are shortcut keys. You can use it on your desktop to switch between them as well.

                                   5. Hide Desktop Icons :

Number five is hiding desktop icons. Here’s a quick tip to hide all the icons that are showing up on your desktop. Just right-click anywhere on your desktop, go to view and turn off this check mark. Next to show desktop icons and now all those icons are gone that can be helpful. If you’re doing a presentation or you just want to clear all the clutter on your desktop out of the way.
