  2. Locate the file you want to tag.
  3. Right-click and select "Properties" to access the file’s properties menu.  Use Alt+ Ent shortcut!

By using tags in combination with the search functionality, you can quickly filter through your files and find exactly what you need without remembering the exact file name or location. 

This feature is especially useful for managing large collections of files and staying organized in a busy digital environment.

Have you ever found yourself overwhelmed by a barrage of notifications or missed an important alert?

Let’s dive into how you can take control of your notifications and tailor them to fit your digital lifestyle.

Here's how to do it.
  1. Click on the date and time on the taskbar or press Windows key + N to open the Notification Center.
  2. Hover over a notification to reveal the ‘X’ to dismiss it or click to interact.
  3. Go to Settings > System > Notifications to adjust which apps can send you notifications and how they appear.
  4. Activate Focus Assist under Settings > System > Focus Assist to minimize distractions during work hours or while gaming.

Stay informed with timely alerts and customize to reduce distractions.

This can lead to missed important notifications.
