4 Geeky Windows Tricks

General Tips & Tricks

Whether you are a new windows user or you’re just looking for some tricks, you’ve come to the right place. Here are four geeky windows tricks that will greatly benefit you!

1. Wallpapers.

Let’s start out with aesthetic. How long have you had that lame beach wallpaper that isn’t even fitted properly on your laptop? That’s right, too long. There are a ton of programs that you can set up to change your desktop wallpaper automatically. For example, Desktopper connects with Dropbox and cycles through various images. You’ll no longer be stuck with generic wallpapers or blurry photos of something you thought would look cool when you were younger.

2. Personalize

Everything. Wallpapers aren’t the only thing you can personalize. Did you know you can also personalize your Windows 10 screen? Click on the windows logo at the bottom left and click over to the other screen. There you can edit the tiles. Love video games? Well, thanks to the Universal Windows app “Steam Tile” you can set a beautiful collection of tiles based on the Steam games you play.

3. Add Apps.

This should be a no-brainer. There are many useful apps but one of my favorites is the chrome apps. Simply search for the Google Chrome Store and you will find a plethora of apps and add-on’s to use. Going back to the theme personalization, there are also themes and even live themes in the Google Chrome store. The store includes video recording software if you’re seeking to start a Youtube channel or merely record a gaming feat. An Alexa traffic ranking add-on where you keep an eye on your website ranking, to a Grammarly add-on that will tell you when you aren’t feeling like writing comprehensible English.

4. Change your Mouse cursor.

This may seem like a small change but you have no idea how much of a change it makes in your browsing experience. The old little white tree-shaped cursor can get boring real quick. CursorFX is an excellent place to customize your own cursor to your liking. Conclusion. Now, that you’ve seen all these geeky ways to improve your Windows browsing experience, you have no excuse for having a boring average-looking Windows computer. Give it your personality and it will that much more to you.
