This is because they allow rapid access to Windows 10 functions without moving the cursor.

For you see, solely using your mouse and neglecting keyboard shortcuts puts the brakes on your productivity: you consume an awful amount of time dragging that cursor from one end of the screen to the other. Not to mention, you mustn’t forget the time spent clicking buttons.

4 Incredible Taskbar Customisation Tricks You Need to Know

4 Incredible Taskbar Customisation Tricks You Need to Know

Jazz Up Your Windows Desktop

Personally, I believe that the default Windows taskbar is not optimal. Fortunately for you, however, this is an issue that, to an extent, can be solved. In this article, I will highlight the taskbar customisation tricks that you can use to add a sprinkle of pizzazz to your Windows desktop.

Don’t you sometimes get bored of the suboptimal, bog-standard taskbar? If you do, you’ll likely adjust the personalisation settings: the colour, tray icons, pinned items, labels, icon size, position, and so on.

Rather inconveniently, Windows does not offer boggling quantities of taskbar customisation built-in. It’s not like you can easily adjust the transparency of the taskbar, for example.

Equally, some taskbar customisation options compromise other features. An example of this would be using small taskbar buttons. This, in Windows 10, disallows the use of badges—such as the one on your Windows 10 Mail app showing how many unread items there are in your inbox.

For this reason, I feel that Windows is considerably limited in its customisability. By contrast, Linux provides you with far more control over how your desktop acts, looks, and feels. Disappointment—no?

In spite of Microsoft’s limitations, though, there are useful things you can do with your Windows desktop. Furthermore, third-parties decided to join in on the fun by providing us with tools to expand Windows; we are hence blessed with taskbar customisation options not available before.

These are the 5 taskbar customisation tricks that you can employ to enhance your experience and potentially increase productivity.

How Organised is Your Life?Productivity Calendar

There should be no surprises when I say organisation is key when talking about how to be productive.

Despite many people accepting this statement to be true, some of us don’t act accordingly. Consequently, you’ll find an overabundance of disorganised people who simply don’t know how to be productive. Some people, however, are fine with a mediocre lifestyle, whilst others (like you, I assume) have wishful goals that they want to meet.

The problem we find is that, even though the desire to achieve remarkable things is present, there is a lack of motivation driving people through the necessary process—the path that leads to results. We mere mortals cower beneath the heavy, intimidating, ever-accumulating pile of work. Funny, why is this so if we know we must work to get results?

Admittedly, there is a tremendous deal of factors that contribute to a productive workflow. In this article, we will only be investigating a few of said factors, regardless of their equal importance. Still, you will be able to begin the transformation of your life with today’s article; after all, the best path is the one on which you take one step at a time.
