In our «Windows tips» series, we regularly introduce handy functions and tricks for the Microsoft operating system. Here’s an overview of all our tips from 2023.

Since mid-2023, the Editorial Team’s been regularly providing you with tips for Windows 11. Most of them work on Windows 10, too. Our tips are designed to remind you of handy functions or show you new ones. In this article, I’ve listed all of them by topic. I’ll add new ones as soon as they’re published.
