Windows 10 Tips and Tricks

1. How to take screenshots

The first Windows 10 tips and tricks are screenshots. Windows 10 users must already know how to take screenshots. Most people take screenshots with the PrintScreen button and then paste them into the paint. But there is another way, namely, using the snipping tool:

Press the Windows key, then look for the snipping tool.

After that, a snipping tool will appear, which you should use.

To take a new screenshot using the mode used last time, select New.

To select the desired type of snip, select Mode, then select a capture mode.

4 modes can be used, namely: FreeForm Snip (free form as desired), Rectangular Snip (square screenshot), Windows Snip (screenshot in the area of the windows), Fullscreen Snip (screenshot of the entire screen).

Press the Save or Copy button to save or copy to the clipboard.


2. Checking Software Space Size

Each software has a variety of sizes, ranging from hundreds of MB to tens of GB. Currently, the latest games have a fairly large size on average. One game that has a large storage size is Red Dead Redemption 2. It has a size of up to 150GB. However, do you know how to check software size on windows 10? Here's how to check it:

If it appears, click on the System.

Finally, select applications and games to see a list of installed software and their sizes.
