Revert volume mixer to the old style present in Windows 7/8.X. (requires a registry tweak)
How to disable icons from Navigation Panel in File Explorer. (requires a registry tweak)
Windows key + G opens up the "Game Bar", this allows you to take screenshots or record footage in games.
Windows key + X comes up with this menu with useful shortcuts
You can mount/burn .iso images to disks directly from File Explorer by right clicking on the ISO file and choosing the option through the context menu.
You can click on a title letter in the "All apps" list from the Start Menu which triggers a nice zoom-out animation and displays the alphabet for quick access to a specific letter. (Example)
You can narrow down search results to a single type (like files) by first typing the name of the section followed by a colon. For example:
files:jqu <-- this would find jquery files.
This works for basically all section headers (apps: settings: web: folders: etc)
Windows Key + C opens a "Cortana listening" window.
You can resize the start menu to be only the left side if you unpin all the tiles, and then grab the border with the mouse and pull it inwards
If you want or don't want the taskview, touch keyboard or Cortana/search icons on your taskbar, you can toggle them on off by right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting your preferred state.
If you want to remove the login authentication search "netplwiz", untick "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer", hit apply and a screen will appear to type in your password. This does not bypass the login screen, just authentication.
You can use Win+Ctrl+Left/Right arrow to quickly switch between desktops, Win+Ctrl+D to create new virtual desktop and Win+Crtl+F4 to close the current virtual desktop.
