After you move the button, click “Close” to close the window. Now you can find the full-screen button on the toolbar. Click it whenever you want to work with your Windows explorer in full screen mode.

If you ask one of your friends to show how he makes a new folder, he is likely to right-click on the empty background of a folder or drive within Windows explorer and then select the “New”, “Folder” respectively from the right-click menu. To make it ready, he has to give it a name. This is the usual procedure that most people know about to create a new folder.
However, there is always a way to make things faster than usual. Creating a new folder can be done faster by utilizing the available shortcut keys within Windows explorer.
To create a new folder faster, simply press Alt+F followed by W, then hit Enter. Type the name of the new folder and hit Enter once again to make it ready for use. That’s all.Tags: new folder, shortcut keys, Windows Explorer, windows explorer tips, Windows Tips

Well, I do have several ways you can use. In case the first one fails, you can try the second or third or others. The similarity of the ways I use here is you minimize the full screen game using a shortcut key.
The Shortcut Keys to Minimize Full Screen Games:
- Press Win+M to minimize all windows.
- Press ALT+SPACEBAR+N to minimize the active windows.
- Use Alt+Tab to switch focus to another application or window, but for this to run you should have an application left in the background. If not, you won’t be able to switch the focus.
- Use Game Minimizer and press F12 every time you want to minimize the full screen game. The hotkey can be changed.
These are the shortcut keys I know. Can anyone let me know other shortcut keys to minimize full screen games without quitting the play?freeware, windows
When you delete files in your USB drives, these files don’t go into the recycle bin. So, you won’t find the files inside the recycle bin in case you accidentally delete files in your removable drives. Microsoft has explained that the files won’t be sent into the recycle bin if they are deleted using one of these deletion actions:
- Deletions from removable disks (CD-RWs, floppy disks, Zip drives, and other removable disks).
- Deletions from remote shares.
- Deletions from compressed (zipped) folders.
- Deletions at the command line.
So, make sure that you really don’t need the files anymore before you delete them. If it still happens anyway, you can try to recover the files using a free file recovery.Tags: Windows Tips
