If you sometimes have too many windows open and you need to clear things up and / or get back to the desktop view in Windows 10 as quickly as possible, here are a couple of tips that can help.

Windows 10 has a ‘shake your screen’ feature that enables you to quickly clear all the open windows so you can focus on one. Here’s how it works:

  • Grab the window you want to focus on from the top title bar.
  • Hold it and shake it. All other open Windows will then automatically minimise.
  • Shake it again to bring everything back!

Also, if you need to minimise all your open windows to get back to the desktop quickly:

  • Click on the bottom right corner, to the right of the line on your screen. All open windows will minimise. Click it again and all the windows will reappear in their original positions.
